A brand new three day festival showcasing the best artists and makers in Dorset. We will have over 50 artists, crafters, performers and musicians gathered together at Sculpture by the Lakes to demonstrate their skills. You will be able to watch paintings being created, pots being thrown, jewellery being made and a whole ranger of other arts and crafts disciplines being demonstrated. Our aim is to make the whole festival about seeing artists and crafters demonstrate their skills and exhibit their work so you can see and understand the process.

We are taking all necessary precautions to safeguard the welfare of our staff and visitors but some of the challenges ahead are down to us as individuals – our judgment and our common sense. Social distancing and hygiene are of the utmost importance so please bring hand sanitiser with you

*We want to maintain social distancing so you must now book your tickets for entry to the park online. BOOK HERE When you arrive just show your ticket at the window. Please do not come into the office.

*The Gallery Café is operating a TAKEAWAY SERVICE so you can purchase food and drink to eat in the park, this includes picnics as well as drinks, coffee and cakes. Please do not come into the Café – we will operate from a table by the cafe and take your order. We are ONLY accepting payment by contactless credit card, no cash transactions.

*We have spread all the tables and chairs out for safe distancing and scattered them around the park so you can find a safe place to enjoy your food.

It is so important to our wellbeing to get out into nature and experience moments of peace and tranquility but we ask everyone to maintain social distancing, keeping 2 metres from other people and especially our staff.

We look forward to welcoming you back, please look after yourselves and others.
