'The Pan Hag' Field Kitchen


I hosted an outdoor event on the former Easington Colliery pit site for the public to explore lost and overlooked traditional skills and customs related to crafts, growing, food, and nature. I worked with local enthusiasts to lead activities including peg looming, proggy mat workshops, woodturning demonstrations, sea glass collecting, and nature walks and the world's first ever Pan Hag Championship. A printed legacy, ‘The Pan Hag Map’, will be available from early 2017.
