Announcing the first ever Crafts InDurham!

Are you looking for a unique gift or a one-of-a-kind accessory for you or your home? We can help – on Sunday 19th June, Crafts InDurham will be taking over the Market Place in Durham City from 11am-4pm.

We’ve been working together with Durham Markets Company to bring you the first ever Crafts InDurham and we’re excited to say that’s it’s just around the corner!  With artisans, food and drink producers and designer makers from across the region, it’s going to be a great opportunity to discover unique art, handcrafted homeware or decorations, and one-off trinkets. 

With over 30 stalls, there will be a whole variety of different products and styles available to really allow vendors to show-off their incredible creativity.  From personalised frames, ceramics and jewellery to soft toys and charming accessories for you and your home, it will all be right here in the heart of the City. You can expect to find stunning photographic prints, pet portraits, wooden plaques, plants and so much more – from shabby chic to sophisticated and stylish, we’ll have it all with the first ever Crafts InDurham.

Crafts InDurham is going to let us all celebrate people’s creativity and give them a chance to show off their crafting, sewing, and making talents.  Plus, it means we can all get involved with supporting local artisans and independent businesses too.

Durham offers such an impressive heritage combined with an exciting mix of high-street stores, independent retailers, markets, cafes, restaurants and leisure opportunities, and now we have Crafts InDurham to add to this fantastic range too. This is what helps make Durham such a great place to visit!

As well as craft stalls, Crafts InDurham will also have craft beer and street food on offer to help keep your energy levels up, as you browse the markets and explore all the amazing businesses and retailers across the City. 

Don’t forget - Crafts InDurham also coincides with the June’s Dine InDurham and Fashion InDurham weekend. You can expect set menu deals across participating eateries, and special offers and deals from selected retailers within Durham City. 

There’s so much to see and do in Durham City, especially over this June weekend, whether you’re looking for a weekend of dining, shopping or pampering. There really is something for everyone!
