The renowned Greencrafts Village makes a welcome return as an EP “must-do” experience.
It’s a beautiful area in the main arena, where you’ll get to make loads of gorgeous things with natural and sustainable materials with eco-conscious vibes.
Flower crowns, crystal jewellery, metal dog-tags, leather purses & belts, pottery, slate frames, soap and organic body products, felt bags, glass pendants are just some of the 36+ things you can make and take home, as well as getting a chance to try blacksmithing, wood-work, thatching, stained glass and
Walk-in workshops happen all day for €5+. They take 30 minutes to an hour+ and you’ll make fantastic festival souvenirs to take home.
With close up respect for our natural world, it’s the only off-grid area at the festival. When you visit you’ll be amazed by hugely successful positive effects that’ll leave you feeling jam packed with a heap of positive energy.
The area opens Friday at 12 noon, and Saturday and Sunday 11am to 6pm.
Some of Ireland’s best craft makers lead small, friendly, drop-by workshops, where you’ll be led through all the stages of how to make wonderful practical and beautiful items to take home. No experience is needed. The focus is on natural, sustainable, holistic, craft traditions and you’ll get to learn new skills; exchange green mind, body and soul ideas pioneering new ways to live more at one within our natural world, and benefit from great mindful energy. Everything you need is provided. And although it’s an adult area, supervised kids are welcome to join in. There’s also plenty of seats to chill and relax if you’d like to just watch the vibe. A warm welcome awaits you.
Greencrafts are the leading collective of craft making and green thinking at festivals, having spearheaded the Greencrafts field at Glastonbury.
