This year is the 13th annual Festival of Practical Arts held in the village of Fangfoss.

This delightful east Yorkshire village puts on a fantastic show once a year. Jane Cook from The Rocking Horse Shop, says “ The whole aim of Fangfest if to promote traditional crafts. It's amazing how many local traditional crafts people we have and it is a real joy to see the makers demonstrating their craft.”

The Rocking Horse Shop opens it's doors and lets you see how Rocking Horses are made, including carving, painting and making tack. At Fangfoss Pottery they will show you how to make a teapot and you can even have a go at making a pot yourself.. They have a stone carver, chain saw carver, corn dolly maker, Artists and much more. The craft marquee holds 20 local stall holders many of them demonstrating their individual crafts.

We also incorporate a range of family fun, including vintage car rally, flower festival, fairground rides, and you can even have a go at clay shooting or archery. We have something for every one from the very young to the very old.” Says Jane
