Craft Markets

Blue Magpie is a biannual contemporary craft fair weekend run by Anna Taylor, established to showcase some of the best designer – makers on the scene! Set over two floors, 37 designer makers will exhibit in a changing line up with a tea room open all weekend.

The idea of the Blue Magpie craft fair was born out of wanting to share craft – with you! To promote and support designer-makers, who through their talent and craft, make the world a more beautiful place. Did we mention there will be cake?!

See the posts below for the dates and times for the next craft fair, and who will be exhibiting. 

Mothers Day Shopping with Blue Magpie Contemporary Craft Fair

We’re busy at Elmslie HQ organising the next Blue Magpie Fair which will be taking place over the weekend of March 14th & 15th

This fair has always taken place a week ahead of Mothering Sunday to enable you to find something lovely to give as a gift the following weekend!

We’re also looking into trying to get some of our fabulous makers to run workshops so that you can either bring your Mum along to make something together, or you can come and make something to gift to your Mum/Wife/Partner or Significant Other. Or Mum’s can come along to treat themselves, either with a workshop or some Retail Therapy – or both!

More information on courses will be coming soon…
