Thanks Falmouth!

Outlaw Craft FairFalmouth

Wow! What a three days that was…

We had a fabulously festive time at the very first Outlaw Christmas Market in Falmouth and hope you did too. The bunting was out and you all came out in your droves to buy lots of artisan goodies for Christmas!

We wanted to again say a massive thank you to the 10,000 of you that passed through the marquee over the three days as well as all 32 exhibitors our demonstrators, musicians and volunteers. You made it awesome!!

If you want to relive it all over again then take a look at our fabulous photo gallery below (taken on Saturday by the very talented Mike Newman).

We’ve been busy putting together our schedule of events for 2015 and will be announcing some of the dates in the next couple of weeks.

Until next time, keep craftin’ and have a very merry Christmas!

We’re now just 2 weeks away to the start of the very first Outlaw Christmas Market on the Moor in the centre of Falmouth town centre. From Thursday 11 to Saturday 13 December you’ll be able to enjoy 30 artisan makers & producers as well as festive food, drink, live music and maybe the odd bit of mulled wine too!

Thursday 11 is late night shopping in Falmouth so we’ll be open from 12 noon through to 8pm. Then on Friday 12 and Saturday 13 we’ll be open from 10am to 5pm.

See you there!

Volunteer with Outlaw and get Festive!

outlaw-9719It’s less than 3 weeks to go til the marquee goes up and the Outlaw Christmas Market officially begins!

That also means we’re on the look out for some festive Outlaw volunteers to help us get the final touches in place and make sure the 3 days run to plan.

We would love to invite a small team of volunteers to join us for just a few hours to make the very first Outlaw Christmas Market in Falmouth something to be remembered.

What we need help with:

  • Decorating and setting up the Outlaw Marquee. We’ll need lots of help to transform our simple marquee structure into something fabulously festive! Think paper chains, christmas trees and lots of holly! (Wednesday 10th December, from 4.00pm).
  • Exhibitor setup and layout – help our exhibitors get in place quickly and efficiently, while taking a sneeky peek at their products too! (Thursday 11th, from 8.00am to around 11.00am when the event opens – although any time in between would also be greatly appreciated).

If any of the above sounds like fun then drop Judi a line at info@outlawcraftfair.co.uk and let her know how you would like to help and when you are free.

We’ll have plenty of tea and biscuits at the ready and a little thank you gift to show our gratitude!

Thank you again for your continued support of our events!

Josh & Judi (Team Outlaw)

Just to note the Outlaw Christmas Market will take place right in the centre of Falmouth town on the Moor Piazza, next to Prezzo. Thanks.

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.

This time around we have even more workshops for you to choose from (15 in total) and they’ll also be longer and let you take home more so you can carry on the learning at home! Workshops can be booked online in advance of the fair (and in many cases sell out before the day).
