Christmas is coming and I like to start present hunting early, which is why I am off to the Crafted by Hand event in Masham this weekend (November 3 and 4).
It’s a great excuse to visit this lovely market town and to find some beautiful and original gifts. I’ll probably treat myself to something to because, like the other half of Gorgeous Yorkshire – Stephanie, I have been working very hard and I deserve a treat.The line up at Crafted by Hand, which is at Masham Town Hall, is sparkling and, along with stalls, there’ll be demonstrations on everything from blacksmithing and willowmaking to making glass beads and furniture making. There’s also a showcase on papercutting.
Even if you can’t afford to buy anything, just looking round is uplifting and it’s only £2 entry. The talent on display is amazing and there are homemade refreshments and cake from the Nutmeg Creative Cakery.
