'Fleece to Fashion’ skills exchange volunteer training project 

This project centres on craft promotion and inter generational work. The project is about trying to promote wool craft, for all angles.  We are developing a programme of Wool Spinning classes, Felting both wet and dry, along with wool dying classes.

We aim to bring intergenerational work into the mix and see if we can stimulate the young people to get involved with older people and get some of them to pass on the learning and craft. The funding will be used for the tutors and supplies only.  

We will also investigate forming a craft trail and potentially a pop-up shop in the town to promote the crafts and skills.

Please note that the details of events listed above are provided by the relevant Local Authorities.
