The Cotswolds' leading arts and crafts destination is inviting people to embrace 'a season of creativity' this summer, as New Brewery Arts launches Craftfival.
Taking place from Thursday 6 July to Saturday 2 September 2023, the event features a variety of workshops, masterclasses, talks and demonstrations to get involved in, allowing people to get hands on with crafting.
There are lots of free events to try, as well as plenty of activities for children; sessions from The Churn Project aimed at combating loneliness and isolation in the Cotswolds; and events designed especially for creative businesses, such as masterclasses on product photography and making websites with Squarespace — with the inclusive event encouraging everyone to embrace their creative side throughout the summer.
Craftival also offers a variety of ways to embrace sustainability, including a repair cafe, swap shop and sessions on how to repair and upcycle much-loved items of clothing.
CEO of New Brewery Arts, Beth Alden, said: 'Here at New Brewery Arts, we celebrate the role of
craft and creativity in all our lives and this summer we have more
opportunities than ever for the whole community to experience the joy and fulfillment of making.
'Craftival creates new connections for makers, craftspeople, local charities, families and community groups. We are proud to be working with some great craftspeople as well as fellow local charity The Churn Project to provide a summer of creativity with talks, events, pop-ups, drop-ins, demonstrations and fairs.'
Admission to New Brewery Arts is free, as are many of the events taking place as part of Craftival, though advance booking is essential for some events.
For chargeable workshops, talks and demonstrations, tickets cost from £8 for arts and crafts sessions, up to £65 for masterclasses aimed at creative professionals.
