Be more conscientious

Then in the end you will have a nicer more relaxing, efficient place to work. The important part is to get it done. Putting effort in now to make your future ...

Know the difference eco conscious or eco friendly

Do you actually know much about the products you are buying? With the environment becoming increasingly at the forefront of consumer minds when they buy a product, businesses across the globe have had to step up and take on eco-responsibility.

The UK is without doubt one of the most creative and diverse places on Earth.

The talent of makers and artists needs a vent, a channel that allows both new and experienced people the chance to market and sell their work. They also need to network with their peers to exchange ideas and experiences. The craft fair can be that channel. It challenges people, it inspires and motivates people to do better and more.

Supporting your local craft fairs as a visitor and purchaser, helps to grow the community and encourage further creative, social and community wealth.
