The Contemporary Craft Festival - 7th-9th June - Bovey Tracey

For those of you who are interested in craft and design – or if you have an eye for beautiful things – there is a treat in store for you this weekend!

The 10th Annual Contemporary Craft Festival is taking place at Bovey Tracey, Devon, with demonstrations from some of the UK’s leading practitioners in contemporary craft and design.

We are delighted to be providing a Giant Hat for the new Talk Tipi area of the festival, supported by the Arts Council of England, featuring leading makers, thinkers and academics giving inspirational talks about a variety of issues affecting craft.

 Respected as the largest craft festival in the South West, visitors can expect a weekend brimming with live action from 200 makers of contemporary objects including award-winning silversmiths, potters, furniture makers, textile makers, glass makers, jewelers and more.  There will also be workshops for all ages, a children’s craft tent, live music and a variety of food. 

For a full schedule of talks, workshops and demonstrations, have a look at the festival’s what’s on guide.

Darts Farm do it again!

Huge congratulations to the Darts Farm team for another successful Food is Fun Teepees at the 10th Anniversary Exeter Food Festival!

This is the fifth year we have partnered with Darts Farm, and the tipis are now well established as an iconic feature of the festival.

Once again the tipis were packed full of tasty treats, demonstrations and activities throughout the sunny weekend.  From a wine master class with Saturday Kitchen’s Susy Atkins, to using food from the farm to make prints with local artist Sarah Bell; there was truly something for everyone. The World Inspired team agrees that the festival was the best yet, and we can’t wait to be back there again next year!

For those who didn’t make it to the festival, there is another chance to sample the delights of the Food is Fun Teepees, at next week’s Devon County Show at Westpoint, Exeter. The lineup includes appearances from celebrity chefs, including the two Michelin star chef Michael Caines, as well as another packed timetable of workshops and demonstrations.

Food is Fun Teepees!

The World Inspired team is looking forward to the first of ‘Our Tents at Friend’s Events’ taking place this spring and summer.  We will be supporting Darts Farm with the mouth-watering Food is Fun Teepees at the Exeter Food and Drink Festival.

Taking place on 26th to 28th at Exeter Castle and Northernhay Gardens, the Darts Farm team will be delivering a packed schedule of delicious demonstrations and workshops over the three days, including baking in wood fired ovens, wine tasting and appearances from special guest chefs; all inside our lovely Giant Hat tipis – yum!

For details and timings of all the appetising activities have a look at the Food is Fun timetable.

World Inspired Open Weekend – 6th & 7th April – Darts Farm

The evenings are drawing out and spring is in the air (or at least it was!), which means one thing for the World Inspired Tents team - it’s nearly time for our Open Weekend at the lovely Darts Farm.

Taking place on the 6th and 7th April, visitors will have the opportunity to see four of our tipis - three Giant Hats and a Cirrus 40 linked together - in all their splendour, decked out with a selection of beautiful furnishings, including an open fire or two. 

We will also be joined by some of our friends, to help make the tipis look lovely and generally showcase their skills and wares.

Anyone planning an event or celebration, or anyone who is interested in having a look around, is invited to pop in and see us.  The World Inspired team will be on hand to answer questions, and as always, we’ll have marshmallows a-plenty for toasting by the fire!

For directions to Darts Farm have a look here, and for details of suppliers who will be with us for the weekend have a browse through these sites - Jolly Good Wedding, Devon Vintage China, Dartmoor Kitchen, Juicy Lucy Cupcakes, Sarah Lauren Photography, Jenny Rose Flowers, South West Event Hire.

Another Win for the World Inspired Team

We are thrilled to have won Best Marquee Hire Provider at the 2013 Westcountry Wedding Awards.

The awards are the longest running wedding industry awards in the UK and are voted for by customers to recognise excellence amongst wedding suppliers and venues, who are measured on service, product quality and professional standards.

Ed, our MD said “We are absolutely delighted to have won this award. Customer feedback means everything to us and it is also incredibly valuable to our potential customers. 2012 was a challenging season for our crews - being the wettest on record - and it’s fantastic to be know that our customers had a great time, thanks to our tipis being so cosy and our crews being so professional. It makes all the hard work worthwhile, and gives us a fantastic boost for the season ahead!

This latest accolade confirms the growing popularity of Nordic tipis for events since their introduction into the UK eight years ago. Giant Hat tipis are now firmly established in the temporary structure market, and quite rightly so.

A huge thanks to our lovely customers who voted for us, from all of us at World Inspired!
