Wordsmithcrafts seeks to enable people to access their past and by doing this better understand their present situation and hope for a better future.
Their living history activities give people space and time to step outside their everyday lives and experience something new in a fun and informal atmosphere. Because this imaginative step is based on real history, it encourages people to think critically about the assumptions made in everyday life, whilst avoiding some of the excesses of radical alternative living. By giving people of all ages access to the knowledge and hands-on skills required to interpret the past we hope to enable them to better take an active part in crafting their culture.
