Sharing the joy of creating by hand!

The Creative Hands On Festival will preserve and promote hand craft skills and hobbies allowing retirees and the general public to learn something new or refresh an old favourite pastime. 

We are inviting the community to join us to watch demonstrations of a wide variety of crafts, try hands on activities, take short classes to learn a new skill and create an item to take home. Everyone will discover a variety of craft groups available to join in the area, and be able to talk with representatives of these groups.
