Expressions has designed its new Well Made craft fair this Saturday to showcase a selection of the best independent and contemporary designers, artists, crafters, makers and bakers.
Unique handmade goods made by craftspeople from all over the lower North Island will be offered.
There will be stalls selling jewellery, textiles, artwork, clothing, accessories, soaps, candles and much more. There is a great selection of gourmet food products with artisan tastings from makers such as Greytown Gold's olive oil and saffron, Bees Blessing's honey, drinks and salad mixtures, Ancient Grains' gluten-free products, Martinborough Manner's gourmet preserves, jams and chutneys and Kereru Brewery's selection of beers and fizzy drinks.
Throughout the day there will be entertainment by magician Nigel Kennedy, a local band and singers, demonstrations by fabric artist Ron Te Kawa, Kristin from Kristin's Flower Shoppe, printmaker Angela Walker, and pewter artist Maxine Sutherland, as well as supervised fun children's activities.
This is Expressions' first craft fair but plans are already set to make this an annual event for Upper Hutt.
Entry is free. Bring cash because there will be limited eftpos facilities.
