“So many great things to say about this festival! Although I was meant to be working as a volunteer, the temptation to have a go at everything was too great most of the time, so thanks for letting me do it! My lasting memory will definitely be when I lit a fire by friction (got quite emotional when the embers took!). I would like to see more bushcraft next year, because after lighting that fire i just wanted to try something else!”

“Hi – Just wanted to say a big thank you for putting on such an interesting and enjoyable weekend at Penpont House. We came along with our 2 daughters on the Sunday. We were blown away by the amount and variation of crafts you had on display. We especially enjoyed the basket making, butter making, felt making and pottery. We couldn’t really fit it all into 1 day though!! Please keep it going. I’ve told several friends about it since, all who would have loved to come along. Look forward to hearing more about your craft weekends.”

“I’m happy I came this weekend; it was a brilliant opportunity to meet people with similar interests and find out more about what’s going on locally. I had great fun seeing what was going on in the workshops and trying some of the things on offer including the coracle’s, which seem really popular, as do the bush craft and basket weaving demos/workshops. Thank You once again, you were all very friendly and welcoming.”
