Heritage Craft Fair

SATURDAY 16th SEPTEMBER is the date for the second Heritage Craft Fair organised by the Nottinghamshire Building Preservation Trust and taking place again in and around Southwell Minster.

Following a similar format to the first event which was held on a sunny day in May 2012, craftsmen involved in many of those traditional crafts which are not so common to-day will display their crafts and will include ironwork, stonemasonry, stained glasswork, lead roofing, sign writing, timber and plaster conservation, calligraphy, bookbinding, church textiles, mediaeval tile making, organ-making and in 2012 the work of Taylors bell foundry was displayed.

Generously supported by Carl Edwards of the CEL Group and by Woodhead Heritage, the event has attracted exhibitors who work to preserve all types of historic building from the modest of pinfold to the grandeur of the Minster itself. All share a passion for traditional craftsmanship and the use of authentic materials.

Building owners, contractors and the general public will find much to fascinate them, with help and advice freely available from experts.

ENTRY IS FREE and the exhibition runs from 10.00am to 4.00pm.
