Highland Valley Gold Panning
Panning for gold has been around for hundreds of years, with millions of pounds spent on retrieving the gold and gems. But not anymore! At the Spring Festival you can have-a-go at panning for your own treasure.
Elwy Coppice Crafts
With a historic tradition of hazel basketry in the Builth area, Elwy Coppice Crafts are delighted to bring this skill to the showground and see if the Spring Festival visitors have any memories of this wonderful craft.
Thomas carving is based in mid Wales on the edge of the Radnor forest, on the welsh border. Their studio looks out over Hergest Ridge and the Black Mountains, surrounded by wildlife, which is great inspiration for carving animal sculptures on a large scale.
The skill of chainsaw carving takes time, knowledge and practice to master. Woodworking is considered as a craft but it is also an art when done correctly. Watch in amazement as the skilled craftsmen transform a piece of wood into the intricate and details sculptures.
