I will be demonstrating hand-weaving on a floor loom, using British Wool, at the Cotswolds Living Landscape Festival on Sunday 18th September. This event has been organised by Cotswolds AONB in conjunction with The National Trust and is held at NT Lodge Park, running from 10.30 to 4pm.
I have just taught my first course, Weaving for Beginners, as part of the Rural Skills Program that Cotswold Conservation Board/AONB offer to ensure that country skills survive.
The course offers hands-on experiences on a range of looms, from the simple rigid heddle and back strap, to a floor loom.
My floor loom has been relocated to the visitors centre where it will be on display and used in the weaving courses. The next course will take place on Saturday, 28th November.
