Jewellery and craft makers from all over Scotland are gathering in Edinburgh for Friends of the Earth Scotland’s first ever craft fair.

There will be a range of beautiful locally handmade crafts for sale as well as a cafe selling home baking, tea and coffee.

The environmental charity has invited more than 30 exhibitors to show their products at the event, which is free for the public.

Zoe Furnivall, Community Fundraising Officer, Friends of the Earth Scotland, said:

“At our craft fair you will find beautiful items handmade here in Scotland by local craft makers. It’s a great opportunity to find something different and support local Scottish business, and a chance to buy quality items from the people who actually made them.”

The wide range of exhibitors include Nic’s Eco Knits, Earthbeads Jewellery and The Scottish Fairy Door Company.

The event will be the first in a series of Friends of the Earth Scotland craft fairs planned for 2011.
