Every July up to 400 artists, crafters, performers and musicians gathered together in Waterperry Gardens to demonstrate their skills and show their work. You could watch the potter pot, the painter paint and the sculptor sculpt. You could ask the masters of the arts of jewellery, textiles, woodwork and glassblowing about the secrets of their craft. In the ever popular Practical Classes section, you could have a go yourself at the art or craft of your choice with the guidance of an expert teacher.
Hundreds of artists will be demonstrating their work throughout the festival.
