The Great Scottish Craft Hoolie
1-3 September 2023

We're really keen to encourage more people into traditional crafts, so our new Craft Hoolie will provide opportunities to learn about a whole range of crafty things, from turning to fibres.

The event

What your ticket includes

Your ticket includes entry to this small-but-perfectly-formed weekend event, access to a range of workshops with our expert trainers, food for the whole weekend, and camping. We kick off with a Friday-night social and go from there! Food is prepared by our team onsite and we source from local providers wherever possible, meaing you get to eat some of the best Scottish produce available. As well as all that, you can say you've become part of the Great Scottish Hoolie family!
