Each weekend from 9th November and for five weekends thereafter, visitors can meander through the barn and be delighted by the absolute best of our country’s talented artist and skilled crafts makers as they showcase their individually hand-crafted items. 

The barn is brimming with 100% British items all beautifully created by the exhibitors themselves, this is strict criteria for the crafts makers and that’s why visiting Blackthorpe Barn delivers such a unique experience. 

It really is the ultimate craft experience, with turned and crafted wooden creations, textile and knitwear garments, artworks and landscapes, ceramics and figurines, metal sculptures, leather goods, contemporary and textured jewellery and so much more. Many exhibitors change each weekend so there are new inspirations for each visit.
