Saturday August 3rd saw Ely Library once again transformed into a market space for talented stallholders selling a diverse range of highly skilled and beautiful works at our Lughnasadh Craft Fair!
Lughnasadh marks the beginning of the harvest season and celebrates the plentiful first fruits and grains of the Celtic year. Thus we showcased a bounty of hand made and homemade products, including jewellery and gifts, plant-based soaps and wellness products, photography, art, textiles and fused glass.
Approximately 300 visitors browsed and bought, and chatted to the makers about their craft. Drinks were available to complement the delicious cakes on offer by Happy Cheer Cakes, and we received some great feedback from people who felt the library had a ‘wonderful buzz’.
Ely Library regularly holds craft fairs based around the Celtic cross-quarter festivals. Look out for the next one on Saturday October 26th 9.30am-3pm, always free entry! This fair will celebrate Samhain; the close of the Celtic year.
Thank you to all our stallholders who brought their wares to brighten Ely Library!
