The aim of CRAFT FEST is to be a celebration of Craft, Applied Art and Design and to provide Artist/Designer/Makers with the opportunity to sell their work, promote their work, provide demonstrations (and get paid for doing so), provide workshops (and get paid for doing so) and to network with other Artist/Designer/Makers, share experiences and build contacts.
