Shire horses and morris dancers join a range of skilled craftspeople demonstrating ancient crafts at the award-winning London Wetland Centre. Many of the craft demonstrations and talks over the weekend focus on wetlands and how they provide people with food, building materials and tools. Watch an unusual coracle boat being constructed and check out the fascinating eel display.
