This is a booked Cluaran Craft club workshop with limited spaces, so that participants are sure to go away having made something.

It’s not knitting and it’s not specifically Viking era either, but that is what it gets called and you can use it to turn scraps of wire into bling!

You could use the time to make a bracelet from silver plated and copper wire to take away with you. You could also use the time to deepen your knowledge and skill in the art.

All basic materials and tools to make a bracelet are provided. Solid Silver will be available at an extra cost if you’d like a longer project to take away with you. (You could finish it off at a cluaran craft club evening)

If you have any questions please get in touch – or book a ticket using the link!

Want to level up – and work in silver? (extra material cost for the silver)

Cluaran Craft Club

From hot metal working (with Simon Lidwell S.A.U. artist)

Many years ago Wordsmithcrafts ran a “Medieval Craft Club”

Over time interest in it grew, and all sorts of plans were cooked up. Some of these plans involved actual cooking and one day we might publish some of the photos of feasting. We made lantern shields for parades, tried bowl turning, and blacksmithing – among other things! All the crafts had a heritage connection, but the aim is to not just make replicas but also to be inspired to create new things.

The time has come to revisit the craft club idea, so after Easter we will be running specific workshops.

To careful calligraphy…

We will also have general craft club sessions. We will ask for a £5 contribution to cover workshop overheads. Participants will be able to discuss and start “pay as you go” craft projects using Wordsmith Crafts tools and materials.

Participants are also invited to bring their own projects and use the time to “get around too it”, as well as share knowledge and skills.

If you are short of cash, but have time, we can work something out. If you’d like to become a Cluaran member and help this project develop – get in touch too!
