Event Details

Your chance to learn more about the project, socialise and try out our table-top craft skills such as embroidery, leatherwork and calligraphy! Every Friday 10 am – 1pm, no booking required just drop in. Come make things to help bring our village to life!

Come make things to help bring our village to life! Thanks to Lottery Players and Know Your Neighbourhood these workshops are free. These are open to everyone – you don’t have to be a volunteer.

It’s when volunteers get together to practice these skills and make items to help bring the village to life – and the clothing for volunteers to wear. This is the time to talk to our team about the project and what you can get involved in! Find out what the volunteers have learnt recently, try out some of the activities, work on what you started a previous week or swap skills to learn a new one. Staff are also on hand to help you sign up for sessions and access any of the online content.

  • Crafting goes on throughout but we also have the option to get involved in discussions about the project too.

  • Find out about the history of a craft and how the Anglo-Saxons used it.

  • Design Club. This is the chance for you to help shape the project by choosing which designs we use for wall painting, embroidery, costume making and more! For example, how do we combine different Anglo-Saxon patterns? How do we lay out furniture?

PLEASE NOTE: Only this session is free, to access the farm, village and museum outside the session – a ticket is required for anyone who is not a volunteer. These are sold separately: Pay once for 2024.
