Welcome to the Treehouse Online Craft Festival! 
We’ve decided, under current circumstances, that the best thing to do was to work together to move our festival online and at the same time give you a taster of next year’s gathering.  So we’ve been working hard to put something together that enables us to share some online presentations where we can all learn some of the skills normally held at the festival and even some that have yet to be introduced! 

In that light, we approached our lovely workshop leaders and asked them if they could ‘craft’  us some online tutorials so that while we might not officially be together in person, we can still learn together. 

Keep an eye on our Facebook and Instagram accounts for updates on these events. Also, please share your amazing creations from the workshops you take part in as we love seeing what everyone creates.

Sharing and creating together is part of what our community is all about, so whether we’re online together or at the festival let’s keep that alive.
