A new Angus Festival of Making will take place from 20-28 August 2022 to celebrate the wealth of making in Angus with activities planned across the whole region. 

The programme will offer locals and visitors the opportunity to take part in and experience creative making activities including spinning, weaving, painting, pottery, jewellery, stone carving and sculpture. Venues include Murton Farm in Forfar, Montrose Playhouse, and Kirriemuir Community Garden as well as individual studios and workspaces. The Festival will also feature the makers of artisan food and drink in the area, with tastings on offer for a range of produce including chocolate, pies and beer.

Festival goers will be able to visit exhibitions, attend demonstrations by makers in their studios, try new creative activities in taster sessions and appreciate first-hand the skill and talent of dedicated makers working in the region. There will be activities to suit all ages with a number of dedicated events for families and children as well as craft and food enthusiasts. 

The festival is initiated by Angus Creatives, a network of professional creatives living and working in the area and is supported by the Angus Place Partnership, Creative Scotland and Angus Alive.

All events are free to attend and a full programme will be released on Saturday 3rd August which will include an online interactive map and guide to festival venues. Visitors are encouraged to consider sustainable ways of travelling such as buses, cycling and walking, which also offers opportunities to enjoy the beautiful Angus countryside.
