The Handicraft Section is the pure definition of the ‘Have a Go Attitude’
Whether you are young or old, have a passion for baking or sewing, or do you love all things crafty? Handicrafts has a class for you.
Year on year the Handicraft Section proves to be very popular attracting exhibitors of all ages with around 900 entries across the baking, preserves, children’s, knitting, handicraft, art and photography classes. These entries make for a spectacular display much admired by visitors and judges alike.
Visitors to the show love to look at the wonderful handiwork of the very talented entrants. Likewise entrants love to share their hobby with a wider audience than their family and friends. Why not have a go at entering and share your talents – maybe you will be lucky and win a prize.
We have a junior section to encourage those who are 18 years and under to get involved and showcase their talent.
Some of the cookery classes are old favourite such as Victoria Sandwich, but we also try to be topical and up to date. This year we are holding a class for a celebration cake to be judged on decoration only, so get creative and we look forward to seeing some of your amazing cakes on show day!
Our craft section proves to be ever more popular with a wide range of talents displayed on show day. Once again we will be holding our community group classes as well as the family craft project which was new for 2018. Each year we have a class where exhibits are donated to charity and this year we are asking exhibitors to make a bonding square which will be donated to the local special care baby unit.
Photography is a popular pastime and there are several classes to spark your imagination – get out and about with your camera.
