WILLOW weaving, watercolour painting and flower arranging were just some of the activities on offer at bite-size taster sessions on Saturday.

They were all staged by the College of West Anglia, which had 86 people sign up to their taster sessions through the activities on show at the Oasis Village Community Centre, Wisbech.

Exhibitors had come from across the Fens to show off their skills, with card making, creative writing, pottery, material dying, lace making and cookery some of the other crafts people could try.

There was also a family history stall linked to the Cambridgeshire community archive network.

Chris Stevens, Oasis manager, said: "Everybody who turned up had a really good time and were able to get an insight into what they could do and what is available with these bite-size sessions.
