Here are some of the people who joined us , proudly wearing their badges.

Cassandra Harrison of "Gee How Quaint" demonstrated her magical Gocco printing over the weekend and created a new original piece of Art Work 'Dog Park' that visitors added to throughout the weekend .

We had visitors from the length and breath of the country chatting to us about their experiences of craft and visitors went away proudly wearing their one off creations .
