Highlight Craft Festival By The Sea

Highlight Crafts workshops

The seaside is coming to Derbyshire! Well, not really but it will certainly feel like you’ve been by the sea at the end of this Highlight Craft Festival. Join in with four classes including beach hut door stops, resin coasters, glass painting and more.

There are two different day tickets, each day with four set classes designed to teach you new techniques, and these two days will be repeating over 10 days.

Confirmed for the day is:

  • Shaker cards
  • Resin coasters
  • Moodling dotting mandalas
  • Beach hut doorstops
  • Wreath making
  • Glass painting
  • Gilding tricket boxes
  • 3D night lights

Head over to the brand-new purpose-built education Academy, in the heart of Derbyshire, and indulge your creative side.

  • Meet the team and craft with your favourite TV crafting celebrities
  • Create and take away four amazing projects in just one day
  • Learn new techniques and meet new people
  • You will craft in groups of 10, and stay with the same people all day
  • Each class will take place in a dedicated room, giving you chance to explore the whole Academy
  • Light lunch and refreshments provided
  • Fun activities planned throughout the day

Doors open at 9:00am for registration, with the first class beginning at 9:30am. Each class will be 1½ hours, with the last class finishing by 5:00pm.

Places are strictly limited to 40 per day. If you are in a craft group, please note that maximum class size is 10 – if your group is larger than this, you will be split across two groups for the day.

Tickets limited to one of each day per person – this day is the same as days 1, 3, 6, 7 and 10.
