Wool and Willow 2011 (i)

I've just spent two wonderful days at 2011's Wool and Willow Festival in Llanidloes.  Based in The Minerva Arts Centre, the festival is a celebration of sustainable fibre crafts and textiles, with information, demonstrations and a marketplace.  I was familiar with some of the exhibitors (Zalingai, Ruth Packham, The Rainbow Room, Tecstiliau Melindwr, and Hay's Wool and Willow Shop), but it was wonderful to see some new producers, specifically Cwmchwefru Farm, Esgair Fibres and Maria Lalić).  But I wasn't here just to buy.  I was here to attend two courses and try out some new crafts.

More tomorrow...
