Introducing Sew Crafty Handicrafts, a brand new competitive handicraft area at Country Fest with 34 fantastic classes to choose from.¬† If you‚Äôve always fancied having a go at entering your crafty handiwork into a competition, this is a great way to start, or if you‚Äôve been crafting for years, and can embroider with your eyes closed, we have plenty of classes for you to choose from!
With a view to encourage imaginative and inventive entries, as well as first time crafters, the format of the Sew Crafty Handicraft classes are slightly different from some more traditional Shows.¬† The classes are based on objects rather than particular mediums, so that we see a fantastic range of entries showing lots of creativity.¬† Have you made a beautiful special occasion bag you wish to exhibit, or a stuffed doll or animal?¬† How about an impressive wall hanging, or are you a dab hand at greetings cards?¬† Whatever your speciality, and however you wish to make it, there will be a class for you!
And for all those mini-crafters, we have 16 children‚Äôs classes, split into four age ranges.¬† Classes for tiny tots under 5 years old include, amongst others, a painted stone or a collage, which is a great way to show off their pre-school work!¬† Classes for older children include a decorated jar, create an owl, create a handmade necklace and make 1 metre of bunting, plus many others.
Primary Schools can also get involved with the Create a Scarecrow class!¬† Can your creative class build a freestanding scarecrow, to be displayed in the Sew Crafty Marquee?¬† Use any materials you like to create your scarecrow friend, the more inventive, the better! A trophy will be presented to the school with the best scarecrow.
Schedules can be found here¬†
