Creative Sark Festival 2022
June 9th - 18th
Sark is the place to get creative this June. Local knitter Betty Guille, potter Lorraine Nicolle, artists Annie Dachinger and Louise Hill, and florists Ann Long and Ellie Clayton will give demonstrations and workshops in knitting technique, wheel-throwing and hand-building pottery, drawing, watercolours, and floral arrangements. Learn about textiles old and new from Jersey's Pat Clarke, upcycling fabric to make patchwork clothes or exploring the ancient craft of inkle weaving. Renowned UK fabric artist Hilary Charlesworth opens the festival, teaching wet and dry-felting, elegant Japanese braid-making, Australian locker-hooking for cosy rugs and wall-hangings.
There's plenty of entertainment too, with Sark Theatre Company's Elizabethan Comedy Shakespeare on Sark, an approachable vocal workshop with shanties old and new from Jersey's Sonneux, and for the festival's finale, a veille in the Cider Barn with music, readings, poetry, and crafting.
There's truly something for everyone, so do click on the pamphlets for booking information. Some of the workshops are limited availability, so don't miss out - book in!
