Skills in action at abbey
Published 26/08/14



TRADITIONAL Skills in Action — the Crafts That Built the Abbey returns for its third showcase of crafts- people who are continuing the skills that would have built Dorchester’s medieval abbey and sustained the resident monastic community.

This year the emphasis is on the crafts and skills that the monastic community would have needed, and there will be demonstrations from a herbalist, a pole lathe turner, a coracle maker, weavers, spinners and dyers, a calligrapher and illuminator, a basket maker, and beekeepers.

The construction and maintenance of the abbey church will be represented by stonemasons, a woodcarver, a stained glass artist, a blacksmith and an embroiderer.

Entry is free, but donations towards maintenance of the abbey are appreciated. The event will be open from noon to 6pm tomorrow (Saturday) and on Sunday, and from 10am to 4pm on Monday. Refreshments are available in the village and in the Abbey Tea Room. There is off-street parking at either end of the village.
