Arts and Crafts Festival

Arts and Crafts Festival 28-30th September 2018.

For the 6th year running the Church was filled with local artist and crafts people displaying and selling their work alongside demonstrations and workshops including: Lampshade Making, Jewelry making, Printmaking, Pottery and Embroidery. All accompanied by local musicians with homemade cakes and refreshments served all day!

It was a lovely way to celebrate all the talented people in the community with proceeds going to support the work of St Gabriel’s.

A huge thank you also goes to all who have helped with the organisation, the music, the refreshments and the setting up/tidying up and all the little things that go into making events like this so successful.
