Learn mad skillz from your elders at Grandfest!

Ever wanted to learn how to bake bread from someone who has been doing it for over half a century? Or how about learning crochet from a total pro?

Well this weekend you can! GrandFest Cymru is a free one day festival celebrating the heritage skills of talented older people. The family friendly event will take place at St Fagans National Museum of History in Cardiff, with a series of workshops from quilting, rag rugging and embroidery to bread making and international dance. The classes will be hosted by the GrandMakers, who are all over 70. So if you want to get your make on, get down there! 

The Masterclasses will be held at different times throughout the day and will aim to inspire younger generations to discover and learn new skills. There will also be a performance in Welsh and English by Cowbridge Male Voice Choir.
