Make your way to Waddesdon this weekend for a showcase of some of the areas’ most talented artists and makers.

The Artists and Makers Fair brings together 65 local artists including basket makers, painters, photographers, ceramicists, jewellers, potters and many more in one of the largest visual arts events around.

Visitors not only get to admire the arts on display but will also be able to see many of the artists in action giving live demonstrations.

Organiser Sally Evans said: “After a successful inaugural fair in May this year we are delighted to be returning to the Glass House.

There is an abundance of local artistic talent and I am delighted that we can showcase and demonstrate some of the incredible work that they do.

By seeing art in action we also hope to inspire people to take up an art or craft themselves.”

The Artists and Makers Fair will be at The Glass House, Waddesdon Plant Centre, Queen Street, HP18 0JW on Saturday, October 6 and Sunday, October 7 from 10.30am to 4.30pm.

Entry cost is £3 per adult with a significant proportion of the proceeds going to local charities Helen and Douglas House, Iain Rennie Grove Hospice and Bucks Young Carers.

Staff from each of the charities will be at the event to explain the work they do.
