8TH ANNUAL WAKKERSTROOM NATURAL FIBRE
HANDCRAFT FAIR 2016
What the Fair is all about:-
To create awareness and interest in all the “old skills” which are still being practiced today. An excellent opportunity for the exhibitors to sell their creations. To promote as many NATURAL FIBRES as possible, so we can also do our bit in lessening our “carbon foot-print”. Anyone who would also like to demonstrate their skills will be a most welcome exhibitors. All weavers, lace makers, quilters, knitters, embroiderers, spinners, crocheters, fabric painters, natural fibre dyers, felters etc., are welcome. Anyone with cleaned and carded fleece has an opportunity to sell their fibre. An event for the Guilds to attract new members, and network with like- minded people. The consumer is becoming increasingly aware of the origin of products, how, and from what materials, they are made.
