Digital crafting- Minecrafting- will be explored; there will also be a knitalong, stalls with craft items and materials for sale. Throughout the day there will be expert demonstrations (tapestry weaving, wood turning, rock carving, Viking crafts, to mention but some) along with short taster workshops for folk to try out a range of craft activities.
