CREATIVITY was the name of the game at Helensburgh and Lomond Artisans Association’s craft fair recently, with an array of impressive items on display.

The event took place in The Park Pavilion at Hermitage Park and saw a diverse range of goods available for browsers to enjoy and buy, including glassware, sewing, felted art, soap and photographic art.

The fair was one of several to take place in the pavilion, along with The Bridge at Helensburgh Parish Church and Heather Little, co-chair of Helensburgh and Lomond Artisans, told the Advertiser the decision to use both venues had been a success.

She said: “We enjoy holding our craft fairs in Helensburgh Parish Church but alternating between there and the pavilion has been really great.

“We welcomed plenty of people as they went about their Christmas shopping - there were lots of gift ideas ahead of the big day.”

Helensburgh and Lomond Artisans Association was set up by a small group of local artisans and is a non-profit making association which supports local charities by running pop up tearooms, with homebaking at some of the craft fairs.

The aims of the association are to: provide support and advice to fellow artisans; provide regular craft fairs for members to sell their work; offer additional avenues for members to advertise their work.
