We went to Woodfest at Rosemoor


RHS Rosemoor’s Woodfest event returned this year and we were very happy to be invited back. As a celebration and demonstration of all things from trees you might initially ask what’s spinning and textiles got to do with it? Well, most wheels and spindles are made of wood of course (although you can get wheels made of plastic and spindles made of metal, stone, glass and ceramics); many other tools like needles, bobbins, looms, niddy noddies, and Lazy Kates are also wooden and many spinners really appreciate the work and skills of woodworkers as a result. It’s also worth remembering that many trees produce amazing natural dyes from their bark, leaves or husks and we bring a selection of natural dyed wool along to demonstrate this. Spinners and woodworkers are a good match and we love being at this event and meeting all the visitors. Same time next year?…
