From glass, ceramics, jewellery, metal, furniture, paper, basketry, wood, leather to textiles workshops, the festival offers a great range of fun and exciting classes for the whole family.

The three day festival allows you to discover how to design and make handmade crafts for your home or even as a special gift for friends and family. Children from ages 2-14 can also enjoy a range of exciting, inspirational and free workshops or laugh along to a Punch and Judy show. Just some of the highlights from 2015 included Ceramics by Arwyn Jones, Furniture by Peter Lanyon, glass blowing demonstrations by E&M Glass, stone carving with Sculptworks, plus much, much more. However, if you prefer to shop a variety of unique and exclusive products, each exhibitor offers their own range of merchandise to purchase.

Jazz bands and folk singers will entertain the crowds . Throughout the day indulge in the locally sourced food and ales on offer such as falafels and spicy curries to hog roast and traditional cream teas. This family day out guarantees to provide something for everyone, even the dog!
