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.
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!
