This event was an absolute joy. A rare treat for all lovers of crafting, making and handmade, hosted by Kirstie Allsopp, with an impressive cast of talented designers and makers, who spent 3 days inspiring and encouraging.
The skills workshops offered a hands-on experience of a variety of crafts and this was the greatest pleasure of the event, watching the fun and laughter (and sometimes intense concentration) of people trying out new skills.
The Big Top style ‘Super Theatre’ had a full schedule of talks and demos; I was particularly star-struck listening to the legendary Kaffe Fassett! Previous days had seen talks from the likes of Annie Sloan & Cath Kidston.
And shopping of course; Two large tents full of handmade goodies, vintage finds and crafting supplies.
Sponsors & partners included:
Radley who hosted the VIP area where Kirstie held Q&A sessions over lunch.
The lovely Mollie Makes team doing their thing, inspiring a new generation of crafters.
Along with Janome, Hobbycraft & Etsy to name a few.
If you love crafting & making this is definitely an event not to be missed. Get it in your diary for next year!
I put some of my pics in a slideshow to give you a flavour of the day…
