We had an amazing day on Saturday 19th November with our first ever Christmas Craft Fair at Allendale House in Wimborne. A variety of high quality crafts all hand-made in Dorset attracted well over 500 visitors who came along to support us and spend their money. The cakes, all made by members of the committee, went down very well too!
The Craft Fair was held to raise funds for the Association Bursary Fund, which each year provides arts and crafts grants up to a total value of £600. This can be awarded to individual groups for practical projects or equipment. We were delighted that the event raised over £300 for the Bursary Fund. If you are interested in applying for a grant in 2017, more information can be found on our Bursary Award page.
If you would like to contact any of the stallholders, their contact details can be found here. Please mention that you saw their work at the DACA Christmas Craft Fair.
Thanks to everyone who helped and to Allendale House for providing such a lovely venue.
