TreeArtisans' Village

The Village

The goal of Artisans' Village is to create a friendly and supportive environment for artisans to gather together to demonstrate and practice their crafts, and for people to learn or try something new. The event will feature many small villages that will house one category of artisan. Each area will be organized by a village coordinator.

People attending the event are encouraged to stop at each of the villages on Saturday (read more about the Artisan's Pilgrimage below) to learn and try their hands at the crafts being demonstrated. More experienced artisans are encouraged to come and join their fellow artisans working on projects and sharing their knowledge in the company of friends. If you plan to spend most of your day at one particular village, please notify the coordinator of that village, so the coordinator can make sure that space is available for you, and so that you can be updated on any planned activities of the village.

If you are interested in coordinating a village area for a craft not already on our list, please e-mail Lady Elysabeth Underhill (Lissa) at
