Last Saturday (30 September) was the annual Dearne Community Arts’ Festival at Astrea Academy Dearne, championing creativity and celebrating community as usual!

There were some lovely exhibitions from a wide range of talented local artists.

We had the chance to learn about 3D printing, wood-turning and have a go at table shaft loom weaving with Ruth Waterworth.

There were loads of workshops where you could have a go at something new.

We had 7 performances on stage.


It was wonderful to see so many people there (551 attended) and to be part of the something so positive and wholesome. More photos can be seen online (search Dearne Community Arts Festival).
