To mark the opening of its summer exhibition, Sleaford’s National Centre for Craft and Design (NCCD) held a long-weekend of activities.
Cause and Effect has opened at the Carre Street venue, billed as a ‘thought-provoking look at artists’ responses to adversity’.
To celebrate its launch, the NCCD held a private view, live craft demonstrates, new shop showcases and hands-on craft activities across three days from last Friday.

n A ceramics workshop with artists Anna Barlow based on her dropped ice cream works on Monday, July 25, from 12-4.30pm.
