'Stephanie Weightman's Award Winning Crafting Live Show Will Once Again Be In Belfast And Bringing A Whole Host Of Crafty Celebrities'
Northern Ireland | 27.03.2018

Belfast April 2018

Stephanie Weightman’s award winning Crafting Live show will once again be in Belfast and bringing a whole host of crafty celebrities. We are so excited to be packing up our crafting goodies again and making our way over to Northern Ireland and what’s more, we’ve kept the additional day, giving you plenty of time to shop, craft, socialise and more.

As always, we kick off the show with a day-long workshop with Stephanie Weightman, Nancy Watt and their crafty friends on Wednesday 25 April. The workshop will contain a range of paper craft projects, which will include materials, countless craft knowledge from our experts, ideal for all skill levels, refreshments and goodies to take home. So if you are an experienced crafter or you’ve only just started, there are projects that you can either follow step by step or add your own personal touch to. Pre-booking is essential, but you are guaranteed to have a great day, learn lots of new techniques and make new friends. The Workshop ticket also gets you into the show on any or all of the days and covers all refreshments during the workshop.

The show itself is open from Thursday 26 April until Saturday 28 April, and is open 10am-5pm on Thursday and Friday, and 10am-4pm on Saturday. Your entrance ticket gets you in all 3 days of the show if you feel like making a weekend of it.

Over the duration of the show you can visit a vast range of exhibitors stocking stamps, dies, decoupage, fabric, wool, ribbon, beads and much more. You can stock up on all of your craft essentials, as well as finding inspiration from brand new products, whilst meeting your favourite TV crafters. There are also refreshment options and areas to have a much needed sit down after all that shopping!

Crafting Live is home to a huge and most importantly, FREE make and take area that can be booked on the day to take part in. A number of well-known crafters will be running these mini workshop sessions and will allow you to take your finished project home with you. Learn a new skill or polish up an existing one whilst chatting to your favourite craft celebrity. The make and take booking point is open from 10am each day within the show and booking is essential.

Excited already? Well there is even more! There will also be the chance to see Create and Craft shows broadcasting live from the main stage. You could get to be part of the audience and watch some of your crafty celebrities demonstrate brand new products live. There may even be a chance to meet some of your favourite presenters after the show!

There are certainly plenty of things to keep you busy and most of all, inspired at this year’s Crafting Live event. We hope to see you at what we know will be a fantastic event.
