There’s a hive of activity at Elmslie House, with preparations in full swing for November’s Blue Magpie Contemporary Craft Fair.
Taking place over 3 days (18 , 19 and 20 November), there will be a changing line up of over 50 designer makers from a wide range of creative disciplines. With Christmas approaching, it will be the perfect opportunity to shop for handmade Christmas gifts in elegant surroundings, meet makers and enjoy the festive atmosphere.
We’re delighted to be welcoming familiar favourites back to Elmslie, as well as introducing some new makers. We pride ourselves on making sure the best designer makers come to Elmslie House and each one is selected by our small team.
From textiles, jewellery and art, to ceramics, mixed media and woodwork, there’s something for everyone and a host of hidden gems to be found among the fair’s stalls.
The Blue Magpie Fairs wouldn’t be the same without the much-loved tearoom and we’re delighted that it will once again be opening its doors in the basement of the house. With the weather turning chilly, there will be plenty of indoor seating, tucked away from any wintery breezes.
Enjoy a range of drinks and homemade food – everything from soup, savoury muffins and cheese scones, to a selection of cakes, mince pies and mulled wine.
Admission is £3 on the door (cash or card) for adults, with accompanied children going free. This gives each visitor a wristband for (re)entry over all three days, as well as an opportunity to win a bag of goodies in the Makers’ Raffle.
