Call for Applications: Desire London & Winchester 2020

Craft In Focus is now inviting applications for their Desire Jewellery & Silversmithing Fairs held in London and Winchester. We have worked hard to streamline our costs for these events and are pleased to maintain 2019 prices. Craft In Focus has been organising contemporary craft and design events since 2000 and is proud of the reputation gained for excellence of presentation to the public. As well as the Desire Fairs, Craft In Focus also organises a number of mixed discipline events at a number of venues. The events have regularly been listed in the national press as being above all other events of their kind in the UK. A strict selection process ensures only the very best professional designers, artists and craftmakers are chosen.

London - (27) 28 February - 1 March 2020

This will be our fourteenth year of Desire in London and we will once again be staging the event in Chelsea Old Town Hall. Set up is on Thursday followed by a Private View on Thursday evening for exhibitors’ customers. The show will then be open to the public on Friday -Sunday from 10 am—5 pm. 

Winchester - 13 - 15 November 2020

This will be our twelfth year in Winchester where we stage the event within The Guildhall.

The 2020 event will be the twelfth Desire Fair held at this well-known period building which is situated at the end of the High Street making the venue very accessible from the town centre car parks. Winchester is one of the most affluent areas in the South, making this the ideal location in which to stage this event. Set up is on Thursday afternoon and Friday morning opening to the public from 12 noon—6 pm on Friday. Opening hours on Saturday and Sunday will be 10 am—5 pm. For the last three years we have staged this event alongside one of our mixed discipline craft fairs. This has meant a greater footfall for Desire Fair. 

We will once again be staging a mixed media designer craft fair alongside the Desire Fair.

Applications now open

We are now inviting applications for our 2020 Desire Jewellery & Silversmithing Fairs. Applications are invited from silversmiths and jewellers working in any media.
