This is an old-timey camping and crafting weekend, aiming to get a group of like-minded people together.

We have some experienced participants already lined up and are hoping other makers or experimental archaeologists will join us! We will explore a variety of handcrafts and can provide limited materials, but are open to other suggestions!

The plan is to camp and enjoy social time together to discuss arts, crafts, maker skills. Ticket includes camp fees & some material costs but participants are expected to bring fabric/clothing dye, craft, some specific food item to add to the stone stew. General food not included.

The crafts will include but are not limited to:
- Natural dyebaths for fabric (or other materials)
- Campfire cooking & firesetting
- Making a handcart - this does not mean everyone will have a finished one to take home (unless they bring materials and work fast)
- Natural building discussion/experimentation
- A Yuletide ritual (optional)
- Possibly some dance
- Basic loom weaving (or circle or inkle if anyone wants to bring those!)
- Shared "stone stew and cultural evening" - bring something edible to go in the pot and a poem or story to share around the fire..

Not all participants will want to do all things & that is ok.
