Get some great seasonal shopping ideas at the eleventh annual Crafters Art & Design Fair, where over 60 sellers will be showing a wide range of original art and craft, including woodwork, glass, jewellery, ceramics, textiles, paintings and leatherwork. Exhibiting artists and makers are happy to talk about their work. Special guests this year are the Northumbria Basketry Group with an exhibition on the rich heritage of basket weaving. The fair is promoted by The Crafters, a cooperative of artists and designers currently celebrating their 20th year. You can see their work at the member-run shop in Melrose, where there are promotions and prizes throughout October.
