Drop in activities

In addition to our programme of full length workshops we also have a range of drop in activities going on throughout the course of the weekend. These activities will cost about the same as buying a pre-made item but you will also walk away with a new skill set and a completely one of a kind piece.

In addition to these activities there will also be a number of free activities and competitions to take part in over the course of the weekend.

Please note that adults must supervise their under 16's during all activities.

Sign up to our mailing list to be the first to see our new announcements.

Only advance ticket holders will be able to book a place on make and takes so make sure you get yours today - Just £5 + a small booking fee. There will be a limited amount of drop in spaces on the day so book to avoid disappointment.

The Beadworkers Guild will be coming to exhibit a range of beautiful work by their members. In order to promote beadwork as a hobby they will be offering a range of free 'Have a go' sessions where one of the skilled volunteers will show you how to make a beaded charm. These will be drop in sessions so be sure to see them early in the day to secure your place.
