Come along to the centre of Gainsborough where you’ll find live demonstrations and lots of things to buy from our skilled traditional craftsmen and women, artists, makers and bygone trades. Spreading from the Saturday market in the Market Place to Gainsborough Old Hall there is plenty to see. Have a go at blacksmithing, watch a traditional woodturner with his pole lathe, buy a hand-made leather item, stained glass, or an authentic hand-thrown pot. Perhaps you’d like to learn traditional building repair such as sash window restoration or lime mortar pointing, with everything from antique wall-paper restoration to traditional lime plastering you’ll be amazed and intrigued.
