The The Forum Norwich is holding its first Makers Month from Monday 1st February to Saturday 27th February. Golly that’s next week! I am going to be there with the guys from the Mid-Norfolk Guild of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers on Friday 5th, Saturday 6th, Thursday 11th, Friday 12th and Saturday 13th. The first two weeks are fibre focussed: week 1 Yarn; week 2 Fabric. There will be spinning with all the Norfolk Guilds represented, weaving with Kim from The Saori Shed and a plethora of other activities and crafts people. The following two weeks are paint and paper focussed if thats your thing.
Makers Month is for curious beginners and more experienced crafts people and master craftsmen to meet and share skills, ideas and enthusiasm for our craft. For absolute beginners to have a go. It should be really fun and exciting. I’m really looking forward to talking with other fibre obsessives to my hearts content!
I’m also looking forward to a fine talk and exhibition on the Norwich Shawl with Joy Evitt from the Costume & Textile Association on Friday 12th February.
So if you are in Norwich on those dates, come and find me and say hello.
