Countryside Crafts Weekend

Saturday 18 & Sunday 19 August

See a variety of rural crafts in action across the weekend. Watch and learn as demonstrators exhibit traditional countryside skills – from bee skep making to blacksmithing and wood turning to weaving – with the opportunity to have a go at some yourself.

You can also take a walk through history with our excellent re-enactment group, illustrating historic crafts and cooking through the ages.

Sandwiches, cakes, drinks and snacks will be available from our pop-up café and sausage/veggie rolls served hot from the Victorian range.

Normal admission charges to the Museum apply, or visit for free if you bring your valid Ryedale Folk Museum Annual Pass.

Wheelchair accessible. Dogs on leads welcome.

Do you have a traditional countryside skill and fancy coming along to share it with our visitors? Contact Kirsty Holtby on 01751 417367 or email [email protected]
