...3/4 September in Fangfoss Village, E. Yorkshire
Fangfest 3rd & 4th September - 9am to 4pm both days
This year is the 17th annual Festival of Practical Arts held in the village of Fangfoss. This delightful east Yorkshire village puts on a fantastic show once a year. Jane Cook from The Rocking Horse Shop, says “ The whole aim of Fangfest is to promote traditional crafts. It's amazing how many local traditional crafts people we have and it is a real joy to see the makers demonstrating their craft.”
The Rocking Horse Shop opens it's doors and lets you see how Rocking Horses are made, including carving, painting and making tack. At Fangfoss Pottery they will show you how to make a teapot and you can even have a go at making a pot yourself. There will be traditional pole lathe demonstrators, woodturning, corn dolly making, basket weaving, stain glass window making, and much more. Over 20 local stall holders many of them demonstrating their individual crafts will take part in Fangfest in various places around the village.
“We also incorporate a range of family fun, including vintage car rally, flower festival, fairground rides, and you can even have a go at clay archery. We have something for every one from the very young to the very old.” Says Jane
