New Members in a Spin

Woolly Worstead Weekend 2016 resulted in lots of lovely new Guild members.  They’ve watched, listened and practised, and can all “spin a yarn” but it was time to build on those basic skills.  And so, today, we put on an “improvers” workshop especially for them.  They flicked, combed and carded.  They spun long(ish) draw, and they also spun silk. They all went home exhausted but happy.  Thanks to Jenny for being such a generous tutor.

Weaving Magic !

From fine cloth, to sturdy rugs, to . . .  experiments with bicycle inner-tubes and zips ???  Tina is one of our less-traditional weavers.

There were oooohhs and aaaaaahs all round when we helped her take her latest piece off the loom this week. 

Headline News – Discovered in Dilham

Members of the Worstead Guild were delighted (and not a little surprised) when they managed to give birth to several new species of birds and animals yesterday.

The much-admired offspring were the result of several hours of stabbing, chatting and giggling, fuelled by chocolate cake.

A great day, and a valuable contribution to Norfolk’s list of Rare Breeds !
