Explore the finest range of exclusive gift ideas handmade by local craftspeople at the annual Waterford Crafts Christmas Craft Fair. Over 40 craftspeople have come together to showcase some of the superb range of high quality products currently available anywhere in Ireland. The Waterford Crafts Christmas Craft Fair is a must see during your visit to the Winterval Festival. Everything you need to complete your Christmas shopping is all under one roof in this; the 34th year of the Southeast’s longest running Christmas Craft Fair.
Waterford Crafts members produce a wide variety of craft products from handwoven baskets and rugs to hand cut silver jewellery, water colour and oil paintings to quirky ceramics, handmade timber products and wood-turned creations to hand stitched leather belts and handbags, and luxury silk textiles to organic and aromatic skincare products and candles.
Why not create your own Christmas gifts this year and participate in one of the Waterford Crafts Workshops taking place in the Garter Lane Studios during the Winterval festivities. Learn how to make bespoke Christmas cards at the Festive Quilling Workshop with Karolina Laser on the 29th November, create your own Christmas willow decoration at the Festive Willow Workshop with basket weaver Cathy Hayden on Wednesday 6th December and on Wednesday 13th December make your own Christmas themed monoprints at the Festive Card Making Workshop with Sharon Fleming.
