Sheep Day 2010
If you are near Lincolnshire on May 22nd 2010, Unique Cottage Farm Studios is holding a sheep day. This day will celebrate sheep, wool and there will be lots to see and do. The aim is to have several different breeds of sheep for people to look at, spinners, weavers, a group showing felting techniques and a textile artist demonstrating dyeing (me!). Other activities will include knitting and weaving stick activites for familes and you will be able to make your own stained glass sheep with resident glass artists Gillian and David Wing. The aim of the day is to see the process from fleece to needle so people can learn about the animal and rural crafts connnected to wool.
