Handicraft

Handicrafts Section

The year 2016 was marked by the presentation of the Mayor’s Trophy to the Handicraft section which was ceremoniously handed over by the Mayor and the President on the morning of the show. Quite an honour !

Also new for last year was The Penistone Grammar School Trophy to be awarded perpetually in the teenage section. We are very pleased that the school has chosen to sponsor us and show an interest in our annual community event. To complement this there were some impressive entries in the display of textiles from local teenagers, encouraged by the publicity programme we undertook in local schools last year.

Knowledge of the show must be spreading far and wide as I had entries from as far afield as Cardiff and Chester, which is quite edifying.

This year I am aiming to add a few more new and I hope inspiring classes to further stimulate interest and creativity from our talented local community and possibly from other parts of the country.
