Summer began!

July 12, 2022


The theme of the Ashwell at Home was Health and Wellbeing.

Activities were aimed at how people could enhance their lives after two years of living and working apart from colleagues, friends, and families. The psychological benefit of weaving, spinning, felting, and dyeing and the process of making something unique for ourselves and others fitted in well with the programme of events

The event attracted hundreds of visitors, but the area in St Mary’s church where the Guild demonstrated our crafts, offered a quiet and reflective space for visitors to view our work and talk about our Guild. Flossie was a big hit, even people who were not particularly interested in spinning or weaving marvelled at the differences in the wool from different sheep breeds.  Some visitors were also keen to show us photos of crafts they had tried over lockdown. Many thanks to Jan, Helen, and Katherine who gave a warm and instructive welcome to visitors.
