We are proud to announce Spar, Maclean are now the new sponsors for the craft section of the Clarence River Arts Festival to be held over the weekend of July 7-9 at the Maclean Showground.
This will be my first time as the craft steward, I am hoping to grow this section into being a big part of the festival by increasing entries. I am passionate about craft and excited about the direction I hope this will take. I would like to encourage people to enter because the feeling of seeing your lovingly crafted piece on display gives you a real buzz. I entered for the first time last year with an array of knitted cakes, watching the children looking and talking about them was such a thrill.
There are no restrictions on medium used in this section but items are restricted to one metre in any direction. Craft as a category is largely defined by an item having a function, made from a variety of types of work where useful and decorative objects are made completely by hand or by using only simple tools.

You can download your entry form from or pick them up from Ferry Park Gallery, Maclean.
