Despite being only the 3rd week of the year and the wettest January on record the warm glow from the fire kept us warm.


The day began with local artist and blacksmith David Stephenson explaining how our Medieval counterparts would probably recognise every tool around us except for the modern metal vice.


Each member of the group was then encouraged to make a small item that could be completed in the session time.


Our guests left their completed items for display at the Medieval Festival.
