FESTIVALS & EVENTS
There are fantastic wool-themed events all over the UK, many of which I attend. It's wonderful to catch up with other artisans, find out whats new and of course to meet you!
I often have a stand, where I demonstrate how to use a Brinkley Loom, and what you can make on one. I hope you can come along to one (or more!) of the events below and feel free to ask me questions about my looms and workshops. At some of the events, I also run mini workshops, where you can get a taste of what I do.
Some of my favourite yarn & wool craft events around the UK...
I'll just be at Wonderwool in Mid Wales this year, so hope to see you there! But here are the dates for other great woolly events coming up this year!

No event scheduled in 2022
The event is all about creativity and design with beautiful quality, amazing colours and skilled craftsmanship. I particularly love it because I can take my van off into the hills after a busy day and commune with the beautiful Herdwick sheep!
