Expanding on their already popular Hazel Bow Making and Spoon Carving workshops, this year Axe & Paddle are bringing together a collective of their crafty friends to offer festival goers of all ages a huge array of hands-on craft workshops and activities. Embrace the chance to get creative, be inspired and even take home something handmade. Head to The Axe & Paddle Craft Collective and find yourself in a village of creativity! Once at the festival, you can book your slot onto dozens of craft workshops or even commission a piece of art to be made. There's enough entertainment here alone to see you through the weekend and what better way to remember The Good Life Experience, than to make something there!
