Art In Dereel would like to thank the Walking Group for allowing us to show our arts and crafts at the Community Breakfast on Tuesday 5th December. This was the first of what we hope turns into many local events where you can come and talk to local artists and crafts people about their work and view items which can be bought locally.
We had so much positive feedback on the day, we are going to do it again at the Hub Cafe Christmas, on Saturday 16th December from 2pm to 4pm. So if you weren’t able to make it during the week, come to the Dereel Soldier’s Memorial Hall and have a look at our work.
