Based on the Scottish border, The Crafty Beggars are two skilled crafts people offering working demonstrations of both woodland crafts and hat making in a historic setting.

We present a full and lively display of the crafts we produce, alongside the tools and materials used in their production, be it hand-made felt from our own sheep, woven rush hats, hand-carved wooden spoons or besom brooms and rakes.


As Cornucopia, we can also offer lively performances of period music on bagpipes, hurdy-gurdy and fiddle.
