This expired on 1st July 2022

Two lucky Living North Readers are in with a chance of each winning a pair of tickets for one of the hottest events in the craft calendar, Make & Mend Festival, taking place on Sunday 10th July 2022

Supported by an Arts Council National Lottery Project Grant, the festival is perfect for both experienced crafters and total beginners, offering a great introduction to a variety of crafts. Tickets include access to the festival from 10am to 6pm, with drop-in yoga and craft sessions, artist demos and a Maker Marketplace, plus your choice of workshop all in the beautiful grounds of Ormesby Hall in Redcar. 

Here’s a rundown of what you can expect on the day:

The Maker Marketplace

Featuring thoughtfully-curated craft kits and handmade gifts, you’ll find plenty of unique items from independent businesses the festival is proud to support, shining a spotlight on many talented makers from the North East. 


With more than 20 options, suitable for all levels of experience including absolute beginners, the festival’s workshops are led by wonderful makers who will guide you every step of the way. Your ticket includes access to one workshop of your choice but if you want to add extra workshops you can do so in advance during the ticket checkout process – it’s for just £10 per one-hour workshop or £15 per two-hour workshop. 

This year’s workshop programme includes watercolours, embroidery, brush lettering, silver clay, candle making, dried flower embroidery, punch needling, plant terrarium making and lots more. You can check out the full workshop programme here

Demos and Drop-ins

Alongside the workshop programme there will be a selection of free demos and drop-ins offering bite-sized intros to new skills and crafts, providing creative inspiration galore. There will also be yoga sessions on offer throughout the day – the perfect way to gently move your body and unwind!
