Looking, Buying and Learning
We'll have loads of brilliant things for you to see, buy and do, including 80 wonderful exhibitors covering knitting, crochet, spinning, weaving, felting and dyeing. We'll also have a range of guilds and associations who can give you loads of advice and demonstrate crafts you may not have seen before. We're also running a great range of workshops. You can see the workshops that ran in 2022 on the Workshop page, and the ones running in 2023 will be similar.
