There will be open space for learning a variety of crafts.  Teachers will be available and craft stations will be open all day for those who wish to share their knowledge or to learn new things.  We have a wonderful chapel for bardic entertainment, so bring you voices and instruments to celebrate with us.  If you are interested in teaching a class, please contact Lady Ciarnait.
