ARTS & CRAFTS
The Highcliffe Food and Arts Festival is, owing to its popularity, bringing again Art & Craft to their popular festival. The Little Craft Shack will again be coordinating all Arts and Crafts for this coastal community event.
The Little Craft Shack is a Christchurch based online company providing quality handmade Arts & Crafts. It was started by friends, Loz Walters and Katya Benedetto, who share a love of beautiful and unique gifts. They have established a wonderful online portfolio showcasing handmade gifts for their customers. Each artist has been personally sourced and selected and brought together as a collection under The Little Craft Shack umbrella.
The Little Craft Shack supply local stores and hotels with a tailored gift range for customers & guests. The Hengistbury Head Visitor Centre and The Captain’s Club Hotel & Spa are among their current outlets.
Below are some of the handmade gifts that will be available in the craft marquee and gazebos at this year's festival.

Story telling with Mary's Usborne Book-Shelf - Saturday and Sunday
As an Usborne bookseller and primary school teacher, I love to spark children's enthusiasm and curiosity for both literature and the world around them. Usborne's range of books includes both fiction and non-fiction for all ages - babies to teens. During the festival, as well as selling from my wide range of stock, next to my stall I will be setting up a magical story tent. Throughout the 2 days, I will be holding free story telling sessions for younger visitors.
