Shetland Arts and Crafts Association in collaboration with Shetland Arts present the Summer Craft Fair.
Following the success of the 2020 Christmas Craft Fair, Shetland Arts and Crafts Association are returning to Bonhoga with four groups of makers, over 18 weeks.
Book a free 20 minute time slot for up to 6 people from a maximum of two households to browse the high-quality local arts and crafts in a socially distanced setting.
The fair runs from Friday 7th May – Sunday 5th September and is open from Wednesday to Sunday 10.30am – 4pm, please book below.
Every month there will be a new group of local makers and producers. The first group of makers includes Peerie Oorick, Austin Taylor Photography, Lisa's Leatherworks, Linda Richardson and Uphouse Crafts.
Austin Taylor Photography captures Shetland’s emotion, drama and colour in photographs of its Northern Lights, landscape, wildlife and people. Lisa’s Leatherworks creates bespoke, hand crafted leather goods including belts, wallets, purses, journals, gifts, knitting backs and pet/equestrian items. Linda Richardson creates limited edition etchings and linocuts, watercolours, acrylic on canvas paintings and cards, inspired by the Shetland landscape. Self-publisher, children’s author and needle felter, Peerie Oorick joins the line-up, using Shetland wool in their needle felted creations. Uphouse Crafts also joins this group of makers, creating handmade gifts, accessories and children’s clothing.
