Craft Demonstrations at the 10th Anniversary of The Contemporary Craft Festival

Celebrating 10 Years of the Contemporary Craft Festival

Not quite at panic mode yet but The Contemporary Craft Festival is winding itself up to be bigger and more beautiful this year. I'm new to blogging as usually engrossed with Facebook and Twitter and I'm looking for guest bloggers to write short pieces on the Craft Festival. If you'd like to be part of our comms team running up to the Festival, leave a comment. 

We're not afraid to shout form the roof tops that we love craft and the Festival brings together exceptional work from leading makers from all over the UK and Ireland. We're expecting over 10,000 visitors to the small town of Bovey Tracey in Devon so plans are nearing completion. 
200 makers selling their work, demonstrations, workshops, children's crafts, street food, live music, lectures, debates. We've got it covered.

Including demonstrations by  Gareth Neal and Sarah Kay
