About the Great Dome Art Fair

The Great Dome Art Fair is an annual event organised and run by Peak District Artisans* (www.peakdistrictartisans.co.uk).

The great Dome Art Fair is now in its ninth year and is going from strength to strength.  More than 7000 visitors regularly flock to the Dome over the weekend of the Fair and many go away delighted with some new artwork to enjoy.

We hope we will see you there this year.  We’re a very personable bunch and are all fully trained in the art of chatting.  It’s extremely rare that an artist bites a visitor, so you’re probably quite safe!  

One thing you can be sure of is that you will see some amazing high quality art and craft.  You will be able to speak to the artist that made the work (jeweller, craftsman, blacksmith, wood turner, painter, photographer, potter etc.) in person.  There are no gallery staff, no sales representatives, no pressure……just a very talented bunch of hugely enthusiastic professional artists who love nothing better than to chat about their work.
