Greencrafts Village 2023

Celebrating thirty years of life-changing hands-on-making with Glastonbury’s brilliant festival goers, the Greencrafts Village (located just below the stone circle with stunning views across the event) is a truly must visit field where you can create life-long memories – literally crafted by your own hand, eye, heart and mind.

The Village specialises in natural, sustainable, holistic, craft traditions and is all about skill-sharing, with hundreds of daily workshops on offer (you can book or drop-by) including: green woodworking, blacksmithing, bow and arrow making, stone, wood and avocado carving, silver casting and all sorts of jewellery making. Plus learning how to thatch, throw a pot on a wheel, or even make a yurt or wooden framed building, plus fabric and fibre weaving, basket making, knitting, crochet, stitching and applique; as well as lotion, potion, soap and perfume making plus stained glass, pottery, raku and kiln making. Materials are natural and sustainably sourced and the rewards of hand craft making are profoundly positive.

The Greencrafts Village is a place to come to ground yourself, to rediscover your creativity, to learn ways to live lighter on the land, to chill out, and to create and take away a genuine special keep-sake of your own festival making. The whole field is off-grid, with only natural power (sun, wind, people). The atmosphere is lively and friendly, and you’ll leave feeling refreshed with loads of energy. Or you’re welcome to come and hang out amongst our beautiful hand-made seating, gardens and sculpture, or watch what’s happening from a shady spot under a tree or woodsmans shelter.

There is something for everyone from total beginners to seasoned makers.
All activities open on Wednesday at 10am and run daily until 6pm on Sunday.
You can always have-a-go for free and many workshops are also free or 5 pounds upwards, plus there’s a Happy Hour at 10-11am daily where all activities on the field are totally free.
