The weather was fantastic and the show was bigger and better than ever, being one of the best attended fairs in recent years. Once again Chilstone had a specially designed garden and we were delighted to meet so many vistors who owned Chilstone artworks in their gardens. It is great to hear from owners, especially if they have enjoyed their Chilstone ornament for many years!
'We were delighted with the new format of the Weald of Kent Craft Show, which attracted record numbers of vistors. It was one of the busiest shows that we have attended at Penshurst!' Steve Clark, Chilstone.One of the most popular displays was our own Nigel Hatfield giving a display of stone carving and allowing members of the public to have a go themselves. Our garden also featured a giant frog who seemed to attract a lot of kisses during the day!

It was a great day out and the event proved to be a great start to what we all hope will be a glorious Kentish Summer.
