We went to the creative craft show at the NEC in Birmingham on the 17th March.
The Creative Craft Show was free for under 16 if you were with an adult.

It was really good there and there was lots of crafts to look at and have a go trying.

I saw people making things with clay, silver clay, stamps and ink, felt, yarn, screen printing, fabric and lots of other cool things.
The people showing the crafts were very helpful. I found the show quite busy although the exhibitors were saying it was the quieted day of the four days.

I have been inspired to try some new crafts that I haven't tried before and some I have tried before that I want to improve: Lavina stamps, screen printing, folk Art inspired by narrow boat painting and silver clay.
I loved seeing the sewing because I love sewing. I also enjoyed seeing new crafts.

    It sounds like a good place to find some inspiration! What were some of the things you learned there?
