Crafting Workshops

Let out your creative side and make something beautiful in one of our crafting workshops. Or perhaps you wish to learn the noble art of swordplay in a Medieval Combat Workshop, en-garde!

Please note that if you are taking part in a workshop during the time when the photo session is taking place in the morning or when the signing session is taking place in the afternoon then please speak to a volunteer at the photo/signing session and we'll make sure you get your photographs/autographs as quickly as possible so you can get back to your workshop and only miss a small part of it.

Dothraki Jewellery Workshop

The most oversubscribed item on the TitanCon programme the last few years has been the Dothraki Jewellery Workshop run by Emma Andrews from the Game of Thrones Drapes and Embroidery department. So of course we've brought it back again this year with two workshops for 14 people in each session so that more people get the opportunity to create their very own Dothraki jewellery. All the material is provided including real horse hair from Emma's own horses.

To cover material costs we are charging £5.00 for a ticket to participate in the Dothraki Jewellery Workshop. There are 14 tickets available for each session so 28 people will get the chance to join in over the course of the day.
