Over the Bank Holiday weekend, we visited Treefest at Westonbirt Arboretum. This is a fantastic festival filled with woodworking demonstrations, tools, delicious food, music and various arts and crafts. There is plenty to appeal to arty shoppers and eager woodworkers alike and I thoroughly recommend a visit next year if you are able to go.
Here are a few pictures from the day. Thank you to Sam for being photographer!
Ralph Curtis aka 'The Mushroom Man' of the Yew Turn company was definitely the most charismatic demonstrator at the festival, entertaining all ages with his mushroom making!
Shepherd huts seem to to be very on trend this year and we enjoyed pottering around in a few.
Whisky Barrel Rockers of Scotland had a very eye catching stand featuring their beautiful garden furniture made from recycled whisky barrels.
The Tintern Woodland Studio also had a lovely stand with lots of sculptures of The Green Man and some beautiful jewellery too!
One of my favourites from a previous visit was World Fossils. This is a real treasure trove of fossils and unique pieces of jewellery.
There were so many amazing sculpures and pieces of furniture for sale as well as plenty of demonstrations to see how the pieces were made. I particularly liked the chainsaw sculptors!
