Well, that was a blast!

We showcased over 60 of the best artisan makers plus workshops, demos, a make & take and delicious food… we can’t say thank you enough to the 1500 of you that turned up and joined us last Saturday. It was a blast!

We had some great comments, but we are always looking to make it a better day out for you, so if you have a spare moment please complete our visitor feedback form and let us know what you think.

We’re busy getting ready for the Outlaw Christmas Market on The Moor in Falmouth Town Centre from 11-13th December, but until then check out the gallery of photos below from Outlaw No.3 on Saturday.

Make a Fresh Flower Fascinator at Outlaw

Make a Fresh Flower Fascinator with Sarah Hill FlowersFancy having a go at a bit of florestry?  Outlaw No.3 (Saturday 1 November) is the perfect opportunity to do just that.

Pop over to Sarah Hill Flowers stand and try making a beautiful fresh flower fascinator during her drop-in workshop sessions.

With some simple florestry techniques Sarah will teach you how to turn a few flowers and some wire into a pretty flower hairpiece.  Once you’ve mastered a few basic steps you can take your new-found skill and use it in lots of ways (how about fresh flower napkin rings for your Christmas table or jazzing up your party outfit?)

So don’t miss out – head on over to Sarah’s stand and get making!

Taking place at Outlaw on Saturday 1 November. These are drop-in workshops run from Sarah’s stand within the main exhibition hall throughout the day. 

It will cost £3.50 per person and will be on a first come, first serve basis.

Join our FREE ‘Make & Take’ Session at Outlaw

decorative-pom-pomsWe’ve got something special (and rather exciting) to announce that’s taking place at Outlaw No.3 on Saturday 1 November.

You can join Pam Booth from Paper Gardens & the Outlaw Team to take part in a mini ‘Make & Take’ a Pom session – we’ve nicknamed it a Pomathon!

Watch Pam make a decorative Pom and then join in and follow along with your free kit. The best part is you’ll be able to take it away after the session ready to hang in your home or pop on a gift decoration!

Just one caveat – we’re limited to just 30 ‘making’ participants and places will be on a first come first serve basis. The session will begin at 2.45pm, but make sure you get your seat early. This is a live demonstration in our demo theatre and different from our workshop programme.

So get ready – Sit down, relax and make a Pom!

Session begins at 2.45pm on Saturday 1 November in the demonstration theatre at Outlaw Craft Fair, Penwith College. ‘Making’ places limited to 30.

What’s New: Fairs, Christmas Markets and Business Events…


While the sun is shining we’re busy here at Outlaw HQ planning our exciting new events.

We’ve just announced our next Outlaw Craft Fair which will take place again at Penwith College, Penzance on Saturday 1 November.  We’ve listened to your feedback and we’ll have an even better Outlaw!  Hurrah!  Put the date in your diary and keep your eyes peeled for updates on what’s being planned.

We are working with Falmouth Town Council to organise the first Outlaw Christmas Market from 11 – 13 December on the Moor.  We hope to announce full details shortly, but if you’re a maker or producer and would be interested in taking part, drop us a line.  It will be a very Christmassy affair with lots of the usual Outlaw touches and attention to detail.

Our latest brain-child is Making It! a series of evening events for makers, creatives and designers. The idea behind it, is to combine business talks with practical advice from industry experts,  inspirational stories from other makers and time to chat with fellow creatives.  The perfect place to learn, grow your business and be inspired. Watch this space for more info.  We will be launching our first one in the next few weeks.

Enjoy the sunshine!

This week was a busy time at Outlaw HQ with finalising design work, leaflet distribution and last minute venue checks! But most exciting of all was a fun visit to the Spring Makers Market at Penryn Campus, Falmouth University. The fair showcased a selection of up and coming student makers currently studying at the university.

The Outlaw team was invited, by the University, to come along and choose the best student maker at the fair and also present the Outlaw Student Award.

The Outlaw Student Award is our way of showing support to emerging student makers. It will hopefully go a small way to promoting up and coming creative talent and help new makers on their first tentative steps to success.

We’re pleased to announce that the winner of the very first Outlaw Student Award is (drum roll please!)… Continue Reading →

Outlaw needs you – volunteers wanted!

The time is ticking away and Outlaw No 2 is getting ever closer. It takes an incredible amount of effort to bring the whole event together and we always need an extra helping hand to get the final touches in place and pull the event off on the day.

So this year we would love to invite the help of a small team of volunteers to make Outlaw No 2 GREAT!

We would require a minimum of 4 hours help, but would appreciate any extra time you have.  Once we know how many people would like to be involved then we can look at timings and divvy out the duties!

What we need help with:

  • Decoration and setup on the evening before the fair (Pre-Event: Friday 4th April from 5pm)
  • Ticket desk – this would involve welcoming people to the fair and taking payment for entrance (Saturday 5th April)
  • Workshop area assistant (Saturday 5th April)
  • Demo Theatre assistant (Saturday 5th April)

What we’ll give you:

  • 2 free tickets to Outlaw
  • Free lunch
  • Free Outlaw t shirt
  • And a HUGE thank you from us!

Please contact Judi at info@outlawcraftfair.co.uk and we can discuss what works best for you.

Thank you Penzance… that’s a wrap (until next time!)

We would like to start off with an incredibly big thank you to all the visitors, stallholders, demonstrators and workshop leaders who took part in the very first Outlaw Craft Fair and made it such a huge success! We were blow away with the response and were so happy that over 900 of you turned up to take a look at all the incredible makers on show as well as take part in all the crafty activities.

We took a few photos during the day – have a browse:
