1000 Years of Traditional Crafts

The 1000 Years of Traditional Crafts event is set to return to Lincoln Castle. Now in its third year the event which features a multitude of skills demonstrations has built up a strong reputation for being a fun yet educational event with something for everyone to enjoy.

Over the weekend the grounds of Lincoln Castle will be filled with craftspeople demonstrating traditional skills from blacksmithing and pole lathe to willow weaving, jewellery making and silver smithing.

As well as having the chance to see age old skills in action, members of the public will have the opportunity to try their hand by having a go at one of the short courses that will be taking place in the recently built Heritage Skills Centre in the grounds of the Castle. Younger visitors will also be entertained in the children’s marquee which will provide a range of activities for them to show off their artistic side.

The event takes place at the same time as the European Stone Festival at Lincoln Cathedral.
