Living Crafts

Living Crafts at Hatfield House always takes place in the second week of May, but as you can see from the different type of clothing worn by the members, the weather can vary considerably: from cold and rain, necessitating the wearing of several layers and welly boots, to very hot and sunny when lots of cool drinks are required!


Other events at which members have demonstrated are The Hands of the Craftsman and the Flower Festival at the Cathedral & Abbey Church of St Alban, Mill Green Museum, The Salvation Army and St Mary's Church Flower Festival.

We hold monthly meetings at Marshalswick Community Centre every month except August. At most meetings we have a speaker, on lace or other craft related topics, with a supplier in attendance.

The meetings are well attended with an average of 50 members at each meeting. Once or twice a year we hold a members evening, where members can bring their pillow and make lace and chat or just chat! We sometimes have a display of members work and a bring and buy sale of unwanted lace equipment.
