Win tickets to the Living Crafts Show at Hatfield House

Moore at Living Crafts in May 2011

Living Crafts will be held at Hatfield House, Hertfordshire from Thursday 5th – Sunday 8th May. This vibrant and inspiring show attracts thousands of visitors each day and aims to promote the very best of British professional craftsmanship with exhibitors coming from across the U.K.

Living Crafts is the premier craft event in Europe with an enviable reputation for the extensive range and high quality of design in both contemporary and traditional crafts. The unique skills of our British designer-makers are celebrated, from innovative new designs and techniques to heritage skills in rural traditional crafts.

This year, to celebrate its 400th anniversary, Hatfield House will be hosting a major exhibition by Henry Moore ‘Moore at Hatfield’. Fourteen stunning sculptures will be enjoyed in their formal and woodland settings and will be the first solo exhibition of Moore’s work in the grounds of a historic house. Sculptors exhibiting at Living Crafts will display their beautiful sculptures in a Sculpture Trail featuring bronze, wood and clay and contemporary stainless steel and wire. Visitors will be able to watch sculpting demonstrations and be inspired to have a go themselves.

As a lively show with a great creative atmosphere there are jazz and brass bands, traditional dancing and children’s storytelling adding to your enjoyment. Lectures, demonstrations and workshops are a key feature very popular with our visitors, along with a huge variety of outdoor large scale demonstrations – thatching, stickdressing, raku firing, pot throwing, basketmaking, artist blacksmithing, quilting, patchwork and lacemaking, to name just a few.
