Dorset Arts & Crafts Association Exhibition Awards

The exhibition includes fine art, photography and crafts exhibits, workshops for children & adults and numerous crafts stalls. The exhibition attracts an extremely varied range of crafters and artists from all over Dorset, most of the work being of a very high standard in quality of workmanship and originality of design.

I entered some items into the exhibition at Purbeck School, Wareham, for the first time this year, not really expecting to win anything.

So it was a lovely surprise when I went to pick up my items today to find that every one of them had won an award!
