Living Crafts held its 40th anniversary fair at the stately home, which saw hundreds of contemporary and heritage designers showcase their work.

Welwyn Hatfield mayor, Councillor Howard Morgan, attended the opening of the four-day craft extravaganza and TV gardener Monty Don put in an appearance on the Friday.

Robin Younger, Living Crafts organiser, hailed the event as a success.

He told the Welwyn Hatfield Times: “We had thousands of visitors and the show was a great success.

“With 300 craftsman there was something for everyone, and great workshops and demonstrations.”

Throughout the event, glassblowers, sculptors and watercolour painters put on demonstrations of their craft.

Both children and adults also had the chance to try their hand at jewellery making, textiles printing, paper-making and origami workshops.
