Wonderful woolly day at Small World Theatre
12:09pm Friday 11th October 2013 in What's on
Small World Theatre is holding its first ‘Woolly Day’ event on Saturday 19th October (11 am- 4 pm) as part of The Campaign for Wool’s Wool Week (14-20 October) and there are several reasons to call in to this free family friendly event!
‘A Woolly Day’ is about celebrating the versatility of this yarn with demonstrations, stalls and taster sessions. The National Wool Museum, Maggie Price Textiles and Susan Martin will demonstrate different wool-spinning techniques and there’ll be an opportunity to have a go yourself.
For inspiration, advice and ideas exhibitors and makers include felt artist Ali Scott, handknitted jumpers and cardigans by Jill Holding, crocheted cushions and blankets by Luned Davies and a range of knitwear by Toby Fashions. Çrochet expert Kasturi Tusler (Completeness) will also available to share her knowledge and passion with anyone keen to learn. From Wednesday 16th October colourful decorations made by local knitting and crochet groups in yarnbombing sessions will be visible outside Small World Theatre. Have a look out for them.
A Woolly Day will also launch the start of Cardigan’s support for the Wool Against Weapons campaign, which aims to create a 7-mile long peace scarf to stretch between Atomic Weapons sites at Aldermaston and Burghfield in Berkshire. We aim to start with a meter and would like to invite visitors to join in! Donations of pink yarn of any type would be greatly appreciated.
If you need a final reason to drop in, there’ll be homemade soup, cakes and tea as well as a raffle to win some lovely woolly prizes.
