Let's talk about The Good Life

It's just under 6 weeks until one of the best weekends of the year: The Good Life Experience. A weekend full of good food, great company, amazing crafts, interesting conversation and something new and exciting around every corner. I'll be there with a tent brimming with traditional and contemporary craft featuring a fab bunch of Makers. Here's what you can expect;

Technically, this marks a whole year of Jwrnal being an 'actual thing' so, perfect excuse for a party, right? It was during the festival last year that I first gathered a group of Maker's together under the 'Jwrnal umbrella' and a month later, launched this very newsletter. This makes it just that extra bit special, as most of the group within the Jwrnal Welsh Craft tent are familiar faces now friends, and some new additions to the mix. And, with the launch of Jwrnal #01. in print, well - I'm probably going to get a bit emotional.

If you're already coming, pop in and say hi. These guys (above) will be demonstrating their craft and skills, they'll be letting you have a go and their products will also be for sale. 

If you haven't got your ticket yet, there is still time (and, if you're super quick there is currently 10% off all tickets online this weekend only). You're crazy to miss out, trust me.


The Good Life Experience Team are looking for a team of volunteers, volunteer photographers as well as paid staff to make the festival run smoothly and make sure that everyone has the best weekend possible. In exchange for two shifts during the weekend, you will receive a weekend camping ticket, some good grub and your own high vis jacket. There are a number of opportunities - give it a go!
