Celebrating craft, beauty, passion and skill at Port Eliot Festival
Our tents and tools are to the ready as we gear up for a fabulous few days of making at Port Eliot Festival, set in the glorious grounds of Port Eliot House, the home of the Earl and Countess of St Germans not far from Plymouth. As described in Hole & Corner’s latest issue “imagine a cross between a grand, extended Victorian garden party and the fringe fields of Glastonbury”. It’s a “celebration of arts and crafts, with something of a bohemian, literary bent” and we can’t wait to join a whole host of friends and fellow craftsmen in the Hole & Corner Makers’ tent from Thursday 30th July until Sunday 2nd August.
Brought together and curated by Hole & Corner magazine in partnership with Affinity With Plymouth University, we will all be sharing our love of making with live demonstrations, workshops and talks.
Throughout the weekend we’ll be encouraging as many people as possible to join us making egg boards and boot jacks as well as a special activity for children and the chance to be involved with a collaborative project to make our very own Hole & Corner. In between times, our craftsmen will demonstrate their finer woodworking skills.
Here’s the line-up of Makers…
