Our Ethos and Fairs

Hello! OUTLAW fairs are a fresh, contemporary take on your usual craft events. We create a fabulous boutique shopping experience full of awesome artisan makers but with a whole host of extra bits on the side to inspire and excite our visitors. At each event we have live demonstrations in our demo theatre, taster workshop sessions run by local experts so you can learn something new, live music, kids activities and a whole host of gourmet food offerings. We’re certainly not your usual craft fair! See what happened at our past events.

We want Outlaw to become the premier, destination event in the South West for everyone in love with all things handmade, artisan and most of all independent.

Inspired by the contemporary, indie craft fairs they saw in America and having been disappointed when visiting many local events, a mother and son team from Cornwall,
Judi and Josh Wildeman set about creating their very own artisan craft market with a difference.YouTube

They saw an opportunity to create a vibrant marketplace where visitors could buy quirky handmade products directly from artisan makers and also be inspired to get creative by watching demos or joining a workshop. In May 2013 they sat down at the kitchen table and set about creating it. In just under 4 months it was a reality and Outlaw Craft Fair was born! This was quickly followed up with another fair in April and November 2014 as well as their very first Outlaw Christmas Market which attracted 10,000 visitors over three days. 2015 looks set to be an even bigger year for Outlaw with new events in Bristol and Wadebridge. Find out more about Judi & Josh and get in touch below:
