Welcome to the Berwick Arts and Crafts Group

The Berwick Arts and Crafts Group was made up of voluntary members with an interest in the arts and crafts and was set up in 2012 to:

  •  promote the interest of arts and crafts in the Berwick-upon-Tweed area
  •  form a group that will develop the Berwick Arts and Crafts Festival
  •  organise “Arts and Crafts events” which are open to everyone   
  Some of the Berwick Arts and Crafts Group members
 (and supporters) further details on About Us

The aim of this website is to provide you with details of previous Arts and Crafts Festivals and Fairs; "Looking Locally" provides a summary of local groups; the links page gives an idea  of the wealth or Artistic and Creative talent that is in the area with a long list of local artists in the area and supporters of the group and Regular Features including other festivals, exhibitions, galleries..

The website was last updated July 2016. Our Facebook pages provides a flavour of what else is happening such as other exhibitions, courses, workshops and so much more in Berwick and the surrounding area.

The future

 The committee have sadly decided to disband on 31st July 2016.

We would like to thank most sincerely everyone who has supported us over the years, whether businesses, artists or other groups. We are immensely grateful to them.  “Huge thanks is also due to the members of our small committee who have given so generously of their time and skills.”

The good news is that the group’s Facebook page, which has over 400 followers, will continue to promote events on the local arts and crafts scene. The website will also remain as an archive and link to other local groups.
