Peak District Artisans group in Buxton

A SELECTION of artist and artisans from Matlock, who form part of the Peak District Artisans group, are planning their most prestigious event of the year, the Great Dome Art Fair.

The award-winning event will take place on July 23 and 24. Part of Buxton’s Festival Fringe, the fair showcases the group’s eclectic range of talent, which includes artists, designer-makers and contemporary artisans.

Founded in 1991, and originally known as Peak District Products, the group changed its name in January to reflect the diverse range of talent within the group. PDP was established to celebrate the very best creative work in the Peak District and, 20 years on, the group has grown significantly. There are now over 60 members, ranging from highly skilled photographers and painters through to glass, ceramic and felt artists and many more.

The fair runs 10am –4.30pm on both days, in The Great Dome at the Royal Devonshire Campus, Buxton. There is no admission fee.
