Church Street Festival of Crafts

Church Street Festival of Crafts

Every Summer for the Twickenham Festival and also usually at Christmas Church Street has a Craft Festival celebrating the rich diversity and artistic talent that exits in the borough. This year is no different and the event will be on the first Saturday of the Twickenham Festival, the 10th of June from 11am until 5pm.

There will be hand-made cards, cushions, jewellery, children’s clothes, a specialist hand-made bag stall, toys, local-scene calendars, sugar flowers, face creams and much more. We will also have some street food as well as a local vintner! A few local businesses are seeking to reach out to the public such as BHDayNursery and Escape Fitness too with their stalls on the day. And there will be a carousel for the children and a day of live music for adults and children alike.

Here is a small sample of the 24 stalls that will be gracing Church Street’s cobbles on the day.

Roche-Heery Creatives is a small local business that was formed when writer Elizabeth Heery and photographer Martine Postle met in 2012. Initially they worked on a series of books themed on the River Thames in Twickenham and Richmond. They have seen their business grow, now also focussing on cards and photographic images, and they work both with corporate clients such as the Marriott Hotel, St James Group, Milestone and Collis etc. as well as sell in outlets such as Petersham Nurseries, Orleans Gallery, Richmond Bakery and Harris and Hoole.

Tribe Designs are selling samples of handmade cushions with a Tropical summer theme amongst others. Fabrics have been sourced from around Europe and John Lewis to create bespoke, individual designs.

The Mo Juicy Mobile Juice Stall was set up in April 2014 and has had pitches in Richmond, Twickenham, Ealing, Brentford, Windsor Market, Walton upon Thames and other places in West London, Surrey and Hampshire.
Customers can choose from the menu or they have the option to build their own juice and smoothies (ingredients permitting). All ingredients are fresh fruit, vegetables, herbs and spices, ideally she would source all the ingredients locally but oranges and ginger can’t be grown in the UK. The reason she makes the drinks on the stall is to ensure the drinks contain live enzymes and that the vitamins and minerals are at their prime. This in turn provides a nutritious and delicious re-hydrating beverage. She also serves homemade organic lemonade made with honey. The Web site
