A shop in Diss will welcome crowds of crafters tomorrow (February 22) as it takes part in the Norfolk Makers Festival.

Lessons on working with gold and silver, scarf making and wood engraving will also be given.

Nearly all of the hands-on sessions will be free of charge and crafters of all abilities are welcome to join in the fun.

It is the second year the shop has been involved and organisers hope visitor numbers will near 200.

Joy Holden, who will be running classes on the day, said: “Crafting really does relax you and it’s good for your wellbeing. We’re a friendly bunch here and are always willing to give advice.”
