Saturday 14th & Sunday 15th May, 2016

A specialized art and craft event with a difference, dealing solely in wood.

For those with a capacity for wonder it will be a celebration of  wood work and wood workers.

Demonstations will include furniture making, musical instrument making, displays by traditional fletchers and bowyers, chain saw carving, wheel wright, hurdle making, wood turning, pole lathe turning, sign writing, labyrinth making, flute maker as well as coracle making and traditional gypsy caravan displays.

Workshops, for both adults and children are free and include activities such as archery, willow weaving, spoon wittling, withy work, papermaking, gypsy flower making, pole lathe turning, scrap wood, puppet making, jewellery making, den building, and Monkey-do tree climbing.

Weird and Wonderful Wood is an annual experience not to be missed. For those who love wood, those fascinated by the beauty of wood, and beautiful wooden objects, it is a rare chance to see how objects are made and an opportunity to try making things.


Visitors will be able to meet over a hundred artists and craftspeople, enjoy watching their practical skills and appreciate their work.


There will be a working mobile sawmill on site, so if you want to bring your own tree, it can be cut for you!

Weird and Wonderful Wood is a unique and exciting event which is never the same from year to year. There are new things happening and new experiences every time, including many spontaneous happenings from street performers and acoustic musicians alike. This year are different stalls, demonstrations and workshops for children and adults - as well as established favourites. But one aspect never changes, the event’s very special atmosphere that sees people coming back year after year.

If you have not been before, you will find it a friendly, relaxed and somewhat extraordinary event with something for all the family. Allow time to enjoy a wealth of excellent locally sourced and produced food and drink (including a licensed bar) and beautiful surroundings to explore when you want a break.

“It was one of the most magical days I’ve had, ever. The people were fantastic, so open and warm and knowledgeable and passionate about their crafts.
It was so inspiring and so much fun”.

Anna Morell, Kent.
