Inspire Garden in Libraries


Professional artists will be growing the Inspire Garden in Nottinghamshire Libraries during the school holidays, encouraging everyone to combine creativity with local knowledge and make a collaborative giant flower artwork for each Library to add to the Inspire Garden Exhibition.

Each year, I…

Learn something new for (next to) nothing!


Ah Woolworths… how well I remember happy Saturday mornings from my childhood, pink and white striped paper bag in hand, selecting from the smorgasbord of flying saucers, white mice, pink shrimps, cola cubes and associated sugary goodness, and now you can relive that unbridled joy with the latest offer from The Craft…
