At the Handmade and Creative Market we will be hosting a whole range of competitions. Whatever your medium, whether you are a beginner or advanced, there will be a category for you.

All competitions will be linked to our theme, 'Wild Gardens', so think floral, woodlands, bugs and wildlife. Prizes will range from Handmade and Creative Market Goodie Bags, filled with crafty projects and handmade items, through to arty vouchers and art materials.

Sign up to our mailing list to be the first to see our new announcements.

Only advance ticket holders will be able to take place in our competitions so make sure you get yours today - Just £5 + a small booking fee.

Traditionally wild

Want to enter our traditional art competition? We will have plenty of art materials available on the day for you to create your own master piece. Just take a seat and draw.

Wild Gardens

Join us to raise awareness of our wonderful garden wildlife and how we can look after them for generations to come. Prizes will be awarded for the best posters each day.

Treasure from Trash

Are you a prize worthy up-cycler? In this competition we are asking you to turn your trash (cleaned of course) into treasure. What can you make from items normally discarded in landfill? This is a 'make at home' event but we are open to all interpretations of this prompt, from bird feeders to home decor to fabulous recycled bags. The sky really is the limit - all we ask is that you are able to carry it to the event to share with us/

Trail Of Bees

Can you find all the bees? Take part in this paper based scavenger hunt and find all the bees to be entered into the prize draw at the end of each day.

Inside the Lines

At the Handmade and Creative Market we want to design a fundraising colouring book and we want you to help. Draw us a line drawing linked to our Wild Gardens theme and our team will select our 20 favourite pieces to be featured in the first ever colouring book later this year. If your piece is chosen you will win 5 copies of the book to share with family and friends and some wonderful arty vouchers.
