Weekend details

The weekend starts on Friday afternoon and finishes on Sunday afternoon (after tea).

Workshops, talks and activities will be on the theme Wild and Wonderful. Sometimes this will refer to the subject matter, sometimes there will be connections to other traditional crafts and natural materials. The Harper Adams University is one of the UK's leading land based colleges and should provide plenty of inspiration.

The programme is still being developed so keep up to date here on the website.

Other activities will include a sales table for you to pick up bargains.

As with other years the Guild of Straw Craftsmen Annual General Meeting will take place on the Sunday morning.
