Stepney City Farm hosts festival with have-a-go sessions and rural craft demonstrations
This Saturday, 5th July, from 11am to 3pm Stepney City Farm’s resident rural artists and guest crafters will be offering:
- free have a go sessions
- craft stalls
- demonstrations in pottery, blacksmithing, candle-making, bookbinding and green-woodwork.
There is no charge to attend and all age groups are welcome.
Have you ever tried the pottery wheel? Our potter, Jessica Joslin will teach you how to make a bowl. Have a go at the forge making a leaf, a hook or a small scroll; give pole lathes, log splitting, fire wood chopping and pencil making a go in the wood workshop. Go home with new artistic skills and craft pieces created by you.
The farm knitting group will be doing several demonstrations on knitting, crocheting and spinning. They have washed some of the fleece from the farm sheep and will be demonstrating how they prepare and spin it. They will also be selling knitting patterns, hand dyed yarn and fibre, crocheted brooches and shawl pins.
Lumière de Londres, the leading providers of artisan courses in London, will have a stall dedicated to different traditional crafts, stop by to make a cupcake candle or a fizz bomb.
Ulises López, illustrator and bookbinder will be selling some of his printings and decorating handmade notebooks with his amazing illustrations. He will be also showing how to make a book in a traditional way – and if you feel like it you can make your own notebook in the bookbinding workshop
