Wigton Windows- Looking for Craftspeople

Are you a 3D artist or craft worker? Do you live in North Cumbria? Would you like the chance to exhibit your work to a big public?

Wigton's spring festival- variously known as Wigton's Spring Fling, or Wigton Windows Week is bigger and better this year.

From 24th May to 2nd June, Wigton's shop windows will display craft work from potters, glass artists, sculptors, fibre and textile artists, wood workers, jewellers and metal workers. This could include your work!

The festival starts with Melvyn Bragg launching his new book Grace and Mary on 18th May, and includes the Third Wigton Open Art Exhibition and a craft fair in the Market Hall, two concerts and a performance of In Two Minds by Richard Harris at the John Peel Theatre.
