At Glastonbury Festival this year The Greencrafts Village field, curated by Nic and Marie Piper, was open daily between 10am and 6pm, Wednesday through to Sunday. Nic and Marie run Greencrafts, an Irish company that specializes in organizing participatory craft villages at events.

Being my first time and rather overwhelmed with the sheer volume of info and scale of the festival site, I was completely unaware of The Greencrafts Village until we stumbled upon in on the Sunday by chance whilst en route to something else entirely. It was really interesting to walk around and watch so many people getting creative. If we go again in the future I’ll book myself in on a workshop of two – there was an eclectic selection to choose from and all at really very reasonable prices.

When many of us think of Glastonbury Festival we think of the stereotypical crowds, the mud and the good music. Whilst those things are very much a apart of the festival there’s this whole different, more laid back side to things that one doesn’t so often read about. Like all festivals, Glastonbury is what you make it and with so many areas you can tailor your weekend to suit your tastes and avoiding crowds and music altogether can be achieved.

  1. I had no idea that Glastonbury was so eclectic – this looks like a nice peaceful escape from the mayhem! Super-colourful too!

  2. Oh this looks creatively lovely. Great that you stumbled on it at the last minute.

    I so need to go to a festival. It has been too many years (about 4 🙁 ) Once upon a time I spent most of the summer at one festival or another..then parenting kind got in the way a bit. Wont be long though I guess until the children can come along too 🙂

    • Kids have a habit of doing that and you are either the sort of person who can face taking little ones to a festival or you aren’t. We didn’t take Kitty and Ozzy to one, Camp Bestival until they were school age – favouring calling in babysitter favours from the grandparents to go on our own before then!

  3. why must some people be so fucking creative and amazing? makes me feel like shit. i have been feeling so lazy and guilty about it lately. at least Lily and i made a felt mobile today…. :/

  4. That all looks fab…. I guess Glastonbury is so big that you can make of it what you will. I just got back from the Latitude festival, and spent most of my time in the literary tent. X
