The L’Arche charitable community and local maker collective Rock Paper Scissors (RPS) are holding their first Christmas Fayre at the L’Arche Garden in West Norwood on Sunday 22 November.  In addition to selling L’Arche and RPS art and craft work, limited space is being offered to other local makers. (see below for map and photos of the Garden).

Up to 12 tables/sections of tables will be available, each with average dimensions of approximately 3 ft by 4 ft.  A variety of tables will be provided in and around the garden of the L’Arche community lodge at 21 Idmiston Road SE27, located inside the garden workshop and greenhouse and outdoors.  While L’Arche will provide the tables and have some tarpaulins and a gazebo to provide protection in the event of bad weather, makers may wish to bring their own covers/gazebos (subject to size and garden location).

Each table/space will cost £15 and all of the fees will go directly to the L’Arche charity.

L’Arche will be selling cards, candles and wreaths made by the charity community, so other makers are asked to offer a different range of products.  If you are interested in taking part in the fayre, please email both and with a description of the work you propose to sell – including photographs, links to your website/blog posts/social media feeds – and an indication of how many tables/spaces you want to hire, confirmation of your public/product liability insurance, etc.

We would be grateful to receive your email enquiry as soon as possible before 4.00pm on Sunday 1 November please, in order that L’Arche can consider the ideal range of products.  If you are offered space at the fayre, you will be asked to provide payment in person at the L’Arche shop on Norwood High Street or via BACS payment by 4.00pm on Sunday 8 November (please note that fees will be non-refundable after Sunday 8 November).

Many thanks and we shall hopefully meet you soon.
