News: Guests confirmed for June’s Heritage Crafts Day
We’re delighted to announce that the confirmed guests for our Craft Day on Saturday 11 June are
- Coventry Beekeepers Association
- Weavers’ Workshop
- The Heritage Cake Company
- Coventry Branch of The Guild of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers
- Warwickshire Art & Craft Circle
The Warwickshire Art & Craft Circle will be demonstrating woodcarving and textile crafts and Coventry Beekeepers Association will be on hand to discuss the traditional art of beekeeping. Other skills on show will include braiding and spinning, provided by the Weavers’ Workshop and the Coventry Branch of The Guild of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers.
Even the refreshments will be historical, available from The Heritage Cake Company – though we will also have our usual non-medieval tea, coffee and squash. We’ll also have some music, dressing up clothes and the chance to try your hand at traditional wattling (how the Weaver’s House was made).
Come and see trades which would have been familiar to medieval people brought to life against the authentic medieval backdrop of The Weaver’s House and its garden.
