The team includes:

Over the weekend vistors will be able to follow a map along the festival route to discover & meet a huge variety of designer makers, browse all their handmade goods, learn & take part in some crafty activities and have a super fun day out along the way!      
The map will be available in print and online, along with a reward card, goody bags and other exciting stuff to be announced nearer the time! For more info visit the Craft Trail homepage or you can follow updates on the facebook page too.
