The popular Outdoor Arts and Crafts event, organised by Isle of Wight Council’s Library Service and held on the lawns at Freshwater Library, celebrates its 15th anniversary this year.
The event takes place on Wednesday 12th August between 1000 – 1600 and all the display areas have been fully booked.
Since 1995, the event attracted the cream of the Isle of Wight’s artists and crafts people to the library lawns. This year, a wide variety of arts and crafts will be available and on display, including knot and rope work, pottery, glass painting and local photographs and paintings.
Children are catered for on the lawns with a ‘Rhymetime’ for babies and toddlers between 10.30 – 11.00, followed by a storytime for 5 – 9 year olds.
After this, artist Paul van Giap will run a making and painting workshop for children of all ages, all for free.
Refreshments will be available courtesy of the Women’s Institute for Freshwater Lifeboat funds.
