Shoppers will be sent back in time outside the Forum this weekend as part of the Norfolk Makers Festival.

One exhibition will see Chris Mudd from Norwich Blacksmith showing the traditional way he creates pieces for weddings and other events.

Alpacas from Burnt Fen and sheep from the Rare Breeds Survival Trust will also be outside the Forum with crafters who use the wool to create clothes and thread on hand to talk about their craft.

Mr Mudd said: 'I have made a new portable blacksmith forge for the event from some old gas bottles and I will be demonstrating some of the skills and techniques of blacksmithing.'

There are opportunities to get involved with weaving, printing, painting, and sculpting amongst other Norfolk crafts.
