Knitting and weaving and cakes and sunshine!
Our June Open Day coincided with World Wide Knit in Public Day, so we invited knitters to come along and take part alongside our usual activities. It was a warm day, but it was pretty windy, so we tethered the gazebo securely and ensconced the knitters and their handiwork inside.
The knitters brought plenty of examples of their wonderful work, (and yes, there was also some crochet).
After the success of our previous open day it was really lovely to again share the space with more creative crafters.
We had a fantastic day with enthusiastic visitors leaving fabulous feedback:
“Had a great time worth a visit. Lovely people beautiful building and gardens”
“Fascinating 15th century medieval terrace house in Spon End. The staff are welcoming, friendly and informative. A lovely garden with weavers and knitters showing you how to make craft work. The tea room again has friendly staff selling a lovely selection of cakes and hot / cold beverages. We had a tour of the house which was informative and fascinating. Well worth a visit.”
“Had an absolutely wonderful time, interesting conversation & demonstration of spinning and very informative & lively talk by Tina in the Weavers House itself. Great time in the garden too ?”
“Fantastic see you all soon, and thank you again for giving me a new place of interest and new interests ??”
The garden is certainly looking full of life at the moment. Plenty of time to see it in full bloom over the course of our next few Open Days, including our Tenth Anniversary celebrations – details soon!
