A fascinating display of how glassware is created. Glass blowing bubbles and shapes come to life in an entertaining way.
Ed and Margaret Burke created E+M Glass in the mid 1980’s. They have been designing and making unique works of art for the table from their studio on the Welsh and English borders since 1988. Shows every hour on the hour – come early as they tend to get very full.
We have a few different Blacksmiths attending Barleylands Food Festival, bringing an insight into this fascinating and very traditional English craft.
Stokes Blacksmiths is a long standing family business, now run by Chris Stokes, but started by his dad, a master smith and farrier at the age of eighteen, many years ago. Chris himself has been a blacksmith for over thirty years. He says he loves his work because of the creativity involved; the knowledge that he is leaving a legacy in his work that will last for many many years
into the future and that fact that he never knows who his next customer will be.
Caley’s Blacksmiths feature Rob, an artistic blacksmith, he works at Westfield Forge in Norfolk England. He produces high quality, hand forged functional and decorative items.
And you can have a go too! Make an original hook or keyring and get involved!
Visit our designated chainsaw carving area at Barleylands Food Festival where our team of carvers will be working to produce sculptures over the weekend. Each piece is carved from reclaimed timber from a number of sustainable sources throughout England. The wood is hand selected from sawmills, salvage, tree surgery and garden clearance specialists for its character, colour and suitability for carving.
Carving at Barleylands Food Festival this year we have Ian Andrews and Mark Earp.
