Calling All Crafters!

In October the Doreways Group will be holding another one of their excellent exhibitions; this time on the theme of ‘Traditional and Modern Crafts’. The exhibition and demonstrations will be held at the Old School on Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th October from 10.30 am to 4.30 pm. 

We would like to invite the many talented crafters and hobbyists out there to join us, by exhibiting and maybe demonstrating the many and varied crafts that we see annually entered at Dore Show. If you have an unusual craft or have revived a dying art, we would love to hear from you. 

We are offering space for exhibits, demonstrations and selling opportunities. There will also be covered space available in the Old School yard for the larger and perhaps messier projects. 

The emphasis of this exhibition is to showcase a wide range of handcrafted items and to celebrate the skills of their makers. We hope that it will include some of the old crafts that were undertaken in Dore village in the past such as scythe making, rope making, blacksmithing and wood crafts. 

Initial enquiries and to reserve a space contact Kathryn Short on 07535 105654, or by email at
