Visitors to the Yard will have the opportunity to meet a wide range of artists in the main marquee and on the lawn, with artisans offering glassworks, ceramics, paintings, pottery, jewellery and much more to purchase, as well as a selection of maker workshops encouraging visitors to find their inner maker throughout the weekend.

Rick Worthy, Director of Born Hectic Events says of the artists involved:

“We’re delighted to be back again at the Royal William Yard to present the best of local contemporary makers and artists. We are all excited to be involved in such a high quality event in this prime location and it’s a great opportunity not only for Westcountry artisans to showcase their talent and exhibit their best works, but also for people visiting the Yard to meet the makers themselves and to have a go at one of the workshops.”
