The Great Scottish FireFest
13-15 October 2023

With a love of wood seems to come a love of fire, so join us at our brand new FireFest to celebrate charcoal making, blacksmithing, and more hot and smokey stuff.

The event

What your ticket includes

Your ticket includes entry to this small-but-perfectly-formed weekend event, access to range of workshop sessions and demos with our expert trainers, discussions, 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, meaning 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!

Meet the trainers

Mary Carr

Spend some time with me as I teach an introduction into the traditional craft of blacksmithing. I’m a trained artist blacksmith and toolmaker, and I make tools for other crafts – especially green woodworking. It’s my joy to indulge in the elemental, transformative process of hot forge work and I hope to share some of that with you. Find me by the forge at Fire Fest and have a go yourself!
