Traditional Skills Festival

24 June 2023 @ 10:00 am - 25 June 2023 @ 5:00 pm

Come along to the Traditional Skills Festival and meet  talented local crafters, makers and artists. Visitors have the option to come down for a day or stay for three days.

Over the weekend the farm will host a selection of hands on full and half day skills and crafts workshops with expert crafts people. Visitors will learn basic principles and skills, get hands on with the tools and materials and maybe even create their first  crafted item.

Sunday (11am – 3pm) visitors will get the chance to watch demonstrations and learn from a number of crafters, and also to explore a heritage craft trail around the farm. General admission tickets for the Sunday demonstration day can be purchased in advance.

Visitors who wish to stay for the weekend can book to stay in Willow and Lore’s furnished bell tents or pitch up with their own camping kit.


Please note, admission ranges from £5 – £10 and workshop attendance from £45 to £90. Please read more following the organiser’s link.
