Arts and crafts return to Vale da Telha

Some of the Algarve’s most talented artists and artisans are to stage their fourth Arts & Crafts Fair at Vale da Telha on the west coast.

Painters, fashion, fabric and jewellery designers, glassmakers and textile designers will exhibit their wares at the fair to be take place at Restaurante Vale da Telha on Saturday, September 30, from 11am to 5pm.

Entrance is free, snacks and drinks will be available to purchase and proceeds will go to local animal charity, the Aljezur Environment and Animal Shelter (AEZA).

Many of the exhibitors from the previous three fairs – along with other artists and artisans showing for the first time – will be back to showcase their talents.

Unique handcrafted gifts and collectables will be on show and available to buy, including the delights of a chocolate creator, glass, fine handmade jewellery, original artwork, porcelain, soaps and lotions, leatherware, feltware, prints and greeting cards, textiles, preserves and pickles, and much more.

Botanical artist Susan J Puttick, one of the organisers and exhibitors at the fair, explained: “The three previous shows were so well received by the people of Vale da Telha and Aljezur that we wanted to go back there as soon as possible.”
