It is not long to go now where I will be exhibiting at Hepworth Wakefield with my own craft stall along with other deaf exhibitors.
Our Deaf Awareness Day event is organised to celebrate the national Deaf Awareness week between 15th to 21st May 2017. Over event will take place on 13th May 2017 inside the Auditorium with splendid views of River Calder. The event opens from 11am and finishes at 4.30pm. Supporting Deaf Awareness Week, this event may be the first of its kind to be promoted in the Yorkshire region.
Fun for all the family, there will be face painting for children, tombola and raffle, where the draw will take place at 4pm. There will be many other stalls exploring deaf issues, deaf awareness, deaf culture, British Sign Language, story CDs in sign language, cards and crafts.
