Greencrafts Village 2024

Let your creativity run wild and experience the nourishing effects of hands-on craft for the mind, body, and soul in the Greencrafts Village.

This is the field where you can make really beautiful things to take home; work with gorgeous natural materials and learn new skills and ways to move towards more sustainable and earth friendly choices. There are hundreds of workshops running each day, led by heritage and rural craft experts. No experience is needed and huge numbers of things are free.

From carving a spoon to silver-casting, creative possibility greets you at every turn. Greencrafts’ craftspeople are ready to welcome you into their bespoke handmade workspaces and guide you in forming a connection with their tools and materials.

Working hands-on and making with natural materials has a profound effect on the body and mind, and the Greencrafts Village lead in the field internationally, offering Glastonbury’s brilliant festival goers an unforgettable experience!

Here’s a taste of what’s on offer – for those interested in using timber there’s hand carving, peddle or cycle wood lathing, greenwood furniture and timber-frame building, as well as learning to use an axe, or try hand carving wood with chisels for free.
For beautiful adornments there’s recycled silver, copper, pewter and antler jewellery making, iron-age blacksmithing of amulets, the making of fresh flower crowns, perfume, organic skin products and soaps, re-cycled fabric headpieces and clothing, as well the dying of cloth and yarns with natural materials.

If survival skills are your thing there’s fire-lighting, bow making and learning how to make cord from Worthy Farm nettles! And then there’s basketry, stone carving, leatherwork, block and screen printing, mosaics, stained glass, sewing, lace and yurt making, weaving and loads, loads more.

  • Everything going on in the field between 10-11am is completely free in the ‘Happy-Hour’, the perfect time to get a chisel in your hand and ease into your festival day.
  • You can also ‘have a go’ for free with any maker anytime of day.
  • The field is open each day from 10am Wednesday to 6pm Sunday.

You can pre-book or wander the field and drop-by into an on-going workshop at any time. Some activities take half an hour, others a couple of hours, and some take as long as you’d like. The Greencrafts Field specialises in natural, sustainable materials and holistic, heritage craft traditions. There’s something very special about the connection forged with a craftsperson during a workshop with Greencrafts.

The field is one below the stone circle (with stunning views across the event). It’s a field 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. And you get to work in hand-crafted shelters including wooden wagons, yurts, tipis, and loads of canvas shelters. Or you’re welcome to come and lounge amongst our beautiful hand-made seating, gardens and sculpture, or watch what’s happening from a shady spot under a tree or woodworking awning. We’re off-grid (with only natural power of sun, wind and people) and you’ll leave leave feeling refreshed with loads of energy.

It is a truly “must visit” field where you can create life-long memories – literally crafted by your own hand, eye, heart and mind.

As the original and first ever Greencrafts, this was the beginning and pioneering space of hands-on crafting at festivals in the UK! It all started here at Glastonbury over 30 years ago; venture into the village and discover the incomparable magic of this pioneering space for yourself!
