About the Artist
My work consists mainly of spinning, weaving, dyeing and knitting. I welcome you to see the spinning process from carding the wool, spinning, plying, through to making it into hanks and finally a ball of wool. Peg looms will be warped up and for sale. There will be examples of dyeing on silk and wool. If the weather permits there will be dyeing demonstrations using woad and lichens. There is an opportunity to see dye and related plants in the garden. Due to Covid restrictions there will be no 'hands on' experience this year but there will be goods for sale, many at reduced prices.
We have to ask you not to bring dogs or other animals and children are welcome as long as they are attended at all times by a responsible adult. Some equipment and some plants have to be treated with great caution.
DirectionsTurn off the Keir Roundabout into a 'lay-by' between Bridge of Allan and Dunblane. Proceed along the tarmac road. Take the first LEFT, off the tarmac onto a rough road. Follow this round a right hand bend, down the hill to a wooden five bar gate.
