Diss’s largest employer Midwich commented on a recent day here: Once again I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and your team for making our marketing away day so successful. The Midwich team enjoyed a fantastic and very productive team building day and I hope in the next 6-12 months we will be back again for another day. I must add, not only was the venue and Sue’s attention to detail just out of this world, Gemma’s catering was once again the cherry on the cake…simply divine.

In July Specialist Crafts held a workshop on Random Precision and Fusing Fibres. Take a look at what they did and the fabulous workshop spaces they worked in.

The fabulous installation in Bury cathedral was produced by children in local schools. The teachers who inspired them were first inspired by the art team who held workshops at Wingfield Barns.
