One of the highlights of the arts’ festival is the chance to have a go at different arts and crafts, thanks to people who are willing to share their talents with us.

After Tim finished on stage, he led circus skills’ workshops for people to learn how to juggle, walk on stilts and spin plates.

Asmaa Chaudhry led workshops on henna designs and making flowers:

Karen Dunn from Furlong Road Methodist Church had her hands full with clay modelling workshops.

Alison Taylor-Fellows was also kept busy with sand art pictures.

Needle felting also proved popular.

We also learned about upholstery, 3D printing, virtual reality cinema and pyrography.

Our thanks to all who led different workshops and demonstrated their skills!
