Joanna Sanderson - Zena & Rose
Every year we are thrilled to host 20 different craft exhibitors as part of the Green Days weekend. The stalls will offer a wide selection of high-quality craftworks to buy or commission.
Please take a look at last year's cohort of talented craftspeople to get a feel for Green Days Craft Fair. It may just inspire you to sign up for a stall of your own.
Artisanne - Award-winning Fair Trade Homeare from Senegal.
Artisanne is the brainchild of two sisters who grew up in Bedford Park – London-based Elizabeth (who still lives in Bedford Park), and Emma who lived in Senegal for six years. We work directly with over 120 weavers in that beautiful country where traditional skills are passed down from mother to daughter. By avoiding any middlemen, we give our artisans access to new international markets, helping to ensure they earn a regular and fair income. Our close contact allows us to create our own designs and guarantees the exceptional quality for which Artisanne is renowned.
We launched Artisanne at Green Days 8 years ago and are delighted to be back with some special offers! www.artisanne.co.uk
