Members of Norfolks WI Arts and Crafts Committee will be demonstrating a variety of arts & crafts including making dorset buttons, and greetings cards.
There’s a long heritage of arts & crafts in the WI. In the early days many WIs set up ‘industries’, making smocks, gloves and children’s clothes, for example.
Gradually these industries ceased and the WIs concentrated on teaching crafts.
The Norfolk Federation has more than 150 WIs, with over 5,000 members across the county.
