The Curated Design at Trereife

This part of the Cornwall Design Fair is selective and is free to participate in if you are exhibiting in the main marquees. Pieces of work will be chosen to be exhibited within Trereife House to complement the rooms in which they will be exhibited. If you are interested in exhibiting a new piece of work, please contact info@cornwalldesignfair.co.uk

The deadline for entries is 30 June 2015.

Each exhibitor will be asked to curate in the house for a set period each day. Exhibitors will have a separate feature about their work in the show brochure.

The Cornwall Design has come out of the Design Fair that was first run by Hidden Art Cornwall. Hidden Art Cornwall ran its first Design Fair in 2006 with 65 designer-makers, growing to over 80 in 2008 with an exhibition of selected work inside Godolphin House itself called Hidden Art Curated, as well as design-led entertainment for families.

In 2009 the first Cornwall Design Fair held in association with Hidden Art took place successfully at the inaugural fair at Trereife Park with fifty-one designer-makers. In 2012 seventy-six designer-makers booked in for the fair with just under 4,000 visitors.

Here are a few comments from exhibitors from the past years:
“I received lots of feedback and as it was my first big fair I feel it has given me confidence to apply for more”, “Just a quick note to say thank you for organising the Design Fair so well. It ran so smoothly and was really fun. Kate, you made it a lot less stressful than I thought it was going to be and I know it’s always good to get feedback after an event”, “Good for networking with other designer makers. A really enjoyable event and well worth the effort which goes into the preparation for it”, “It’s helped me into an area of the country I’ve not sold in before. Prestige of being selected for/appearing at the event”, “Excellent event – well done, a lot of hard work obviously went into it”, “Great atmosphere, really enjoyed the venue and feel very positive about the contacts made at the event”, “My best Hidden Art/Cornwall event”, “On par with Country Living event held at Hampton Court”.
