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.
The 10th anniversary of this annual yarn festival features a programme of bookable workshops, talks & demonstrations led by UK and International experts plus a marketplace of over 70 quality exhibitors selling yarn & fibre accessories.
Held at the Royal Welsh Showground in Builth Wells, this annual festival has a fantastic range of artisan products and tools. Hands-on workshops and events showcasing the best in Welsh and British wool and natural fibres.
WOOL @ JUNCTION 13
Held at family owned and run farm in the pretty market town of Penkridge, South Staffordshire, this vibrant and stimulating show is designed to celebrate and help you learn about all things woolly through its exhibitors, workshops & talks.
HELLENS GARDEN FESTIVAL
This festival, local to me, brings a summer bounty of the sustainable, the eclectic, the quirky, crafted and grown. Be inspired in a stunning garden setting. I will be in the slightly secluded demo area.
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!
