Activities

Wool spinning demonstration

A record number of stalls have booked, coming from all over the UK and even one from Holland. Many are welcome returners, but equally many are new, so word is obviously spreading about our event.

In addition wool-based activities are provided by our demonstrators from Lancs and Lakes Guild of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers, Farfield Mill and Kendal Quakers Tapestry Museum.

One added ingredient this year has been our joint venture with Royal British Legion to raise money for their annual remembrance day appeal and create a Pop-Up Art installation of poppies! Thanks to the hundreds of people who have crocheted or knitted poppies for the display, and a special thanks to arts administrator Sara Last who has masterminded this project for us. If you haven’t done one yet, join our team lead by Marion Minshall here today to show how it is done, buy packs and raise even more money for this fantastic cause.
