Knitting, basketry and rope making provided items of use for clothing and work utensils as well as being a pastime.
In traditional lives during the hours when the daily work was complete they then turned their hands to craft. Whether knitting, basketry or rope making these handmade crafts would also provide items of use for as clothing and work utensils as well as a pastime. We will have a display of these beautiful handmade crafts and a demonstration of each from local craftspeople. As a Heritage Week event this is also part of the European Heritage Days. Refreshments will also be available.
