This is another of the visual arts sections for all age groups. This section gives an opportunity for those interested in the many facets of craft work to create their own pieces of work in one or more of the various crafts and have their work adjudicated. Following adjudication all works are then exhibited in Nuneaton Museum and Art Gallery for approximately one month.
