Summer is almost here, and most of us have got some lovely getaways planned.

Whether you like to dabble in painting or want to keep your crochet project going, there’s plenty of ways to pack light and craft-ready. Keep your crafting going whilst you relax and explore new places around the world, and feel inspired by your new surroundings!
