Stour Provost Dorset SP8 5LZ
The historic setting of Hawkers Farm has breathtaking views across the Blackmore Vale. New copses have been planted, the orchard restored and new hedges created. The farmhouse, garden and outbuildings have been lovingly restored.
Hawkers Farm adjoins Duncliffe Wood (Woodland Trust) and is 4 miles from Gillingham and Shaftesbury. An old milking parlour has been converted into an event barn which is the home of Hawkers Re-Creatives. In addition to hosting sustainable fashion events there are occasional film nights, concerts and pop up shops.
Accommodation is available in a shepherd's hut.

WABI SABEY FESTIVAL
of Rural Crafts and Textiles
Why Wabi Sabey? The Japanese philosophy of Wabi Sabi could be simplified as "Finding beauty in the imperfect" and Sabey is my maiden name so it seems a fitting substitute for Sabi. Sustainability, conservation, upcycling and using environmentally friendly products are at the heart of what we do.
Demonstrations and activities for adults and children will ran daily. These included;
Mending, redesigning and embellishing clothing
Monoprinting inspired by nature
Hand embroidered gifts were available to buy in aid of Sambhali Trust
