Is there any greater satisfaction than that feeling you get when you’ve crafted something with your own two hands? Make & Mend Festival at Preston Hall Museum near Stockton is guaranteed to deliver mountains of gratification on Sunday 1st July; the day-long event is giving punters the chance to get involved with a variety of craft workshops, from tasters in brush lettering and floral painting to getting green-fingered by constructing your own mini terrarium. There’s even the chance to use your skills to help contribute to a field of pom-pom flowers or a flock of origami butterflies.

A number of fascinating installations and vibrant artworks will be dotted around the site itself, while the Zen garden area is set to be the perfect place to relax. Mindful photography walks will be taking full advantage of the sublime grounds and, if you’re feeling inspired and want to test your new skills at home, a small marketplace to stock up on materials can provide everything you need. Whether you’re experienced in arts and crafts or just looking to try your hand at something new, being able to take your own creations home will leave you feeling fulfilled.
