We hold two Makers Fairs each year - one in the May Saltaire Arts Trail, and one in the Autumn, as part of Saltaire Festival. They have a growing reputation amongst exhibitors and visitors alike for presenting the best of contemporary craft and design in a unique setting.

The Makers Fairs are held in May, as part of Saltaire Arts Trail and in September as part of Saltaire Festival. In May the Fair is the craft and design highlight of the Saltaire Arts Trail and in September it forms the major visual arts element of the Festival.

All makers are welcomed from contemporary artists to designer-makers working in ceramics, jewellery, glass, silver, metal, books, paper, leather, wood, plastics, furniture, fashion textiles and accessories, interior textiles printmaking and photography.
