We had such a good time knitting the Hilly Laine at the BRIDGE (Building Research & Innovation Deals for Green Economy) Exhibition investigating the True Value of Materials in the Gallery of Brighton University in December. It was an amazing event and we loved being part of it.
Young and old, male and female, artists and craftists, students, staff and the general public - we had support from the whole community, spinning and knitting on the edge of Hanover.
This will be our last week at the Whitehawk Library before we return to the Green Centre next Friday... do join us..
For the second year running we'll all be there - do join us at the Corn Exchange any time.
We'll be felting in the yurt - you can help to decorate the first part of the roof for our squrt (baby yurt) currently being created in the woods at Stanmer Park.
We'll also be knitting and spinning with a dyeing display and, of course, traditional dye plant seeds to swap.
