Festival workshops include traditional Asian wedding crafts to welding, leather-working to hand-embroidery, ancient mold-making to screen-printing and everything in between.
At the heart of this year's programme is the theme of 'Art in Manufacturing'.

Come along to see ambitious new works of art ranging from sculpture to choreography and digital to site-specific installations.
