DENBIES WINE ESTATE

Dorking, Surrey



We love shopping and look forward to welcoming you to one of our favourite venues - we love it so much we have been running events at this venue for about 9 years!


Denbies Wine Estate, England’s largest and most spectacular vineyard is located on the picturesque North Downs of Dorking, Surrey.


Dorking is a long-established market and later railway town in the valley of the Pipp Brook between the North Downs and the Greensand Ridge. It is approximately 21 miles (34 km) from the centre of London, in Surrey, England. It is equidistant between two high points of the hill ranges, Box Hill and Leith Hill.


The Surrey Hills is a beautiful area  and while you are visiting do take advantage of the surrounding areas, including 7 miles of public footpath which trail throughout the vineyard.

Do you meet the HANDMADE criteria?


For 2020 The Handmade Affair element of our shows at Denbies Wine Estatewill again be offering subsidised stalls on the following dates:  Sunday 15th March, Sunday 10th May and Sunday 14th June. The subsidised prices are the prices shown on the booking page.

Defining 'handmade' is difficult and we have been asked to make sure that The Handmade Affair element of our events at Denbies is made a little clearer!

If you are ‘reseller’ of imported, mass manufactured items you will need to book into the SHOPFESTpart of the event.

 

To be a subsidised exhibitor at  The Handmade Affair at least one of the following criteria must be met:

 

  • Original: The item has an original design. You are able to exhibit prints of illustrations or decals of original artwork but these must be your original design, not somebody else's, or a copy of someone else’s.
  • Jewellery: You may exhibit designs using mass produced beads as long as the design and the putting together is your own work AND there is at least one handmade element. We don’t allow items that have been simply ‘assembled’ from mass produced components with little or no original design involved for example, a mass produced charm attached to a chain. If your jewellery does not have a handmade element please book into the SHOPFESTpart of the event.
  • Clothing & Textiles: The item is in the main handmade by you through a craft practice. You must be able to prove the items are designed or partly produced by you. Imported items are not accepted as HANDMADE. If textiles are your own design but may have been printed elsewhere these will be accepted at our discretion.
  • Assembled pieces: We recognise the time and skill involved in creating displays and therefore allow the exhibiting of some assembled pieces, eg nappy cakes, as long as they have been assembled by you and they are not being mass produced.
  • Items that infringe Copyright will not be accepted at any part of the event.
  • Food & Confectionary: These must be made by you and packaged by you. You. Must have all relevant documentation to be able to sell to the general public. If your produce is packaged at a factory you should book for the SHOPFESTpart of the event.



We have so much going on in the build up to the fairs and we don't want you to miss out!
