Every Sunday morning a small but select Art and Crafts Fair is held on the promenade of the port of Jávea. But on the long weekend in December, the artists and craftsmen will be there for three whole days, so you can buy (or order) your Christmas presents at your leasure.
About twenty stalls will be set up around the Christmas tree and the festive atmosphere will be completed with a Christmas photo-call and a mailbox for letters to Santa Claus whilst on Saturday and Sunday the potter will invite you to make your own bowl or cup on his wheel.
The participants are carefully selected by AMATA craft association and will offer their work on Friday 8th, Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th December from 11.00 in the morning until 7.00pm in the afternoon.
If you are looking for original presents, you will surely find something to your liking. What makes this fair so special is that everything is handmade by the same people who serve you and that each one offers something different.
From useful or decorative objects in ceramic, papier-mâché or wood with resin, to hand-painted silk, accessories and jewelry in materials as diverse as sea shells, silver and enamel, recycled cans, wood, etc. There will be bags made of wood, realistic crochet flowers, pyrography done on the spot, candles, paintings and portraits, funny cards made with little pebbles and eye-catching paintings made on stones. And if you don’t find what you are looking for, there is still time for one of the artisans to make it especially for you.
