It’s all about the hands at @sanlam Handmade Contemporary (FoodWineDesign) Fair‏ @FWD_Fair

We have had very encouraging feedback on the bold name-change from FoodWineDesign to the Handmade Contemporary Fair. The new name encompasses all the curatorial work that goes into this event to bring together true artisans immersed in their craft- from leather workers, to jewellers, ice cream makers and hand pulled noodle experts, several artisans will take turns to temporarily showcase their craft at the Fair. You’ll be able to view these producers at work and interact with them, thus gaining an exclusive glimpse into the studio life of artisans.

There’ll be a wide variety of exhibitors showcasing their wares at the Fair, with over 100 artisans in the food, wine and design industries, many of whom will be using the event to launch their new ranges. A few new exhibitors we’re very excited to welcome on board are jeweller Kirsten Goss, Hemma Furniture and Design, Simon and Mary hats, Lulu and Marula natural skincare products, Cavalli Wine Estate, and Coobs Restaurant. While old favourites such as Goet, Maker, Missibaba, Mastrantonio and Graham Beck will be on board treating us to the amazing products we’ve come to expect at the Fair.

The Fair will take place on the rooftop of Hyde Park Corner, from 7-9 November. Tickets are available for R90 from Webtickets, or R100 at the door.
