Welcome to Wordsmithcrafts
Wordsmithcrafts is the trading name for it's founder Simon Lidwell. A few years ago activity moved into the Wordsmithcrafts Workshop, and this building has become a focus for making things, community development and spiritual and historical exploration. Please browse this website to get an idea of the sorts of things facilitated by wordsmithcrafts.
- or visit the facebook page for a general feed of what is going on day to day.
The name Wordsmithcrafts was chosen because the project is a fusion of wordsmithing (or applied philosophy - hammering thoughts into shape) and crafting (transforming your environment creatively).
The dominant project has been to make art using time. Whether it's learning the basic techniques needed to live a thousand years ago, or applying these techniques using modern materials - or using the experience of current craft practice to understand what life for our ancestors could have been like.
Or just making mead and feasting for the fun of it.
