This year’s Cornwall Design Fair at Trereife creates a festival of design to celebrate the best of contemporary and traditional Cornish workmanship. From jewellery to cookware and Tshirts to armchairs, you can find it all here, all with that extra special Cornish twist. All this is set against the beautiful backdrop of the formal gardens, orchards and woodlands of the Queen Anne ancestral home of the Le Grice family in West Penwith.

A whole week of events is planned, culminating with the Design Fair itself. Penlee Gallery and the Exchange Gallery in Penzance are also joining together to present a week of workshops and activities leading up to the fair in their ‘Art Week’ on 12-18 August. They will also be hosting drop-in events led by local artists at Trereife. Visitors can also get a real glimpse of the grandeur of Trereife House, as a selected number of artists present their work inside the house itself as part of Curated at Trereife. Additionally Leach Pottery will be hosting a marquee at Trereife with workshops and demonstrations of their unique techniques, and offer an insight into the past, present and future of ceramics in Cornwall.
