St Fagans craft festival
On 27 May 2015, St Fagans National Historyhosted a festival as part of the WP4 work package (dialogue with skills).
The festival was a celebration of one of St Fagans core values –. Throughout one amazing day, we welcomed around 50 craftspeople. Many came from Wales but others travelled from England, Catalonia, Germany, Italy and Sweden to be part of the .
Attending craftspeople included demonstrators of silkwork, lovespoon, lathe work, leatherwork, tanning, pottery firing, lave net fishing, coracling, cooking, gate making, collar and harness work, wheel tyring, , adzing, milling, , clogmaking, painting with , lime slaking, basketmaking, carpentry, slate splitting, potting, glass bead making, , , ropemaking, blacksmithing, prehistoric hunting, , halter making, lipwork, beekeeping and storytelling. Phew!
The event was an opportunity for thousands of visitors to St Fagans to see crafts, but also a great chance for the demonstrators to network with each other, sharing techniques and experiences. To help this along we held an evening event with a meal and a band.
