'In the Making' at Fort Dunree 16.11.23

AFTER it's overwhelming success last year, ‘In the Making’ is back by popular demand for a second year. An alternative to the traditional Christmas Craft Fair, this free event is a unique celebration of arts and craft making.

In the Making takes place from 11am to 4pm on Saturday, 18th November 2023, in the Saldanha Gallery at Fort Dunree. It promises to be an inspiring day filled with creativity and will showcase the talents of local artists. The event will also provide visitors with the opportunity to engage in hands-on experiences.

People will also have the chance to try their hand at various crafts, including weaving on a loom, woodturning on a foot-powered lathe, spinning and working with clay."
