Wisley Arts Fest

Wisley Arts Fest features demonstrations from members of Surrey Guild of Craftsmen - you will be able to 'meet the maker' and watch them work. Many will be offering 'have a go' sessions (at the makers' discretion) and there will be small workshops available with some makers. I will be demonstrating the machine knitting which I use to create my bespoke luxury knitwear.
