The Handcraft section volunteers are responsible for coordinating the handcraft competition and arranging the handcraft display that takes place at the show each year.

A handcraft, sometimes more precisely expressed as artisanal handicraft or handmade, is any of a wide variety of types of work where useful and decorative objects are made completely by hand or by using only simple tools. It is a traditional main sector of craft, and applies to a wide range of creative and design activities that are related to making things with one's hands and skill, including work with textiles, moldable and rigid materials, paper, plant fibers, etc. Usually the term is applied to traditional techniques of creating items (whether for personal use or as products) that are both practical and aesthetic.

The handcraft sub-committee organises for the displays of a wide variety of handcraft from all age groups, from pre-school to those adults who do not wish to disclose age!   Not just for girls and women, but classes are available to show the talent of boys and men. Special attraction for youth entrants will be the Special Events + other classes, purely for Lego.  The Handcraft sub-committee would like to thank The Men’s Shed for the construction of the Lego cabinet.


The handcraft classes are all considered by the handcraft judges. The only exception is the annual Special Event class 1, which is judged by Public vote.   Full details are in the schedule.
