Our first ever Christmas Craft fair was held on 18th November 2016 in the wonderful Georgian setting of Allendale House, 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 DACA Art & Craft Grant 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 fund. If you are interested in applying for a grant, more information can be found on our DACA Arts & Crafts Grant page.
