Cornwall Design Fair – 2017
The Cornwall Design Fair is one of The Duchy’s largest design fairs, attracting designers, exhibitors and artists from all over Cornwall.
The inaugural design fair took place in 2006 at Godolphin House, when Hidden Art Cornwall selected 65 renowned designer-makers to showcase their creations. The seeds were sown, and a few years later, in 2008, more than 80 exhibitors were in attendance.
In 2009, the first ‘proper’ Cornwall Design Fair filled the gardens and courtyards at Trereife Park with the event expanding on a much larger scale. Soon, more than 3,500 visitors were enjoying the sights and atmosphere of what was becoming one of the most-anticipated events in Cornwall art calendar.
With the increasing popularity of the fair, more exhibition space was added. A curated design showcased the work of seven designers in the rooms of Trereife House, alongside a mixed exhibition of local artists in the main gallery. The Courtyard Café held a photographic exhibition. In 2011, entertainment was provided for children as well as music, workshops and demonstrations. A number of specialist food outlets were invited to compliment the menu of the Courtyard Café.
