Such a brilliant weekend with Anne Kelly here at The Fibreworks! First, on Friday, a full-day workshop with five students working on the theme of Folk Trees. Then, on Saturday, we took over Chipping Norton's Parish Rooms to host a morning workshop making bird postcards, followed by an exhibition of Anne's work alongside that of our students upstairs in our studio. It's always fascinating to see the work they produce and incredibly exciting to see how inspired they've been to develop their ideas further after the workshops.
Introducing Glowworm, a brilliant yarn with a reflective filament so it appears to glow in the dark when light shines on it. Perfect for children's hats and scarves and indeed for cyclists - helping keep people safe on dark mornings and evenings. Two great colourways and a series of quick and easy patterns for kids and adults.
We're delighted to be one of the very first stockists of buttons from Courtney & Co, a local family firm who have invested in traditional button-making techniques and equipment to produce a range of amazing buttons in Ecuadorian corozo, an entirely natural material. We've got a small selection to test the market, but there are more shades and designs in the pipeline.
