Knitting, modelling, biscuit-decorating and crochet were just some of the activities on offer at a craft event in Clevedon.

The Immaculate Conception Church held its first craft day for children and adults.

Crafters from the parish ran stalls to enable people to have a go at a variety of different activities and watch experts in action.

Enthusiasts decorated biscuits, made model animals which they baked in the oven, designed cards and created their own pictures.

There were also knitting and crochet stands and a quilting display inside the church.

Mary Keyhoe, from the church, said: “For the first one, it was a great success. I was amazed at the wealth of talent within our parish.”

Children were also given free reign to make their own art work from glitter, paint and stickers.

The church is hoping to run a children’s craft day before Easter.
