Craft Crawl Fun – what we got up to

On Saturday 30th July I along with a group of makers set off into Wiltshire on the afore mentioned Group Tweave Craft Crawl. Our aim for the day was to visit the studios of makers, record the sounds that they created whilst making and to drink tea and eat cake.

The sun was shining and we had a wonderfully stimulating day. On our tour the group had time to gather and make thanks to Alison Harper (http://www.alisonharper.net/) who brought along materials to make pompoms and found crisp packet yarn that she created for us to knit and crochet. Did you know you can get 5 metres of yarn from one crisp packet!

Here are some pictures of the group making, talking and laughing together at our first venue: The Glove Factory Studios in Holt http://www.glovefactorystudios.com/. More images of the day to follow inĀ futureĀ posts.
