Goodbye 2023 – a look back
Another year of Open Days has drawn to a close. 2023 has seen a successful season despite some wild weather on occasion – the visitor reviews are consistently glowing.
Highlights during 2023 have included approval for the planned development works, the launch of our revised family history publication The Families of Black Swan Terrace, the excitement of seeing the 50s-style Terrace on TV in Three Little Birds, and some generous donations from various visiting groups.
The Weavers’ Workshop continue to run drop-in sessions on Mondays and Thursdays. Recently they have worked with the Ikon Youth Programme and the artist Seungwon Jung to explore Coventry’s history of weaving through workshops on Slow Boat in Coventry Canal Basin, Ikon gallery in Birmingham and The Weaver’s House itself.
The months of the year has seen a new business, skincare specialist SkinCo, take up residence in one of the shop rental units in Black Swan Terrace.
The Weaver’s House is due to reopen for visitors in April, and we will add our confirmed dates soon. If you have been mulling over the thought of offering some of your time to maintaining this little gem in 2024, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org for a chat.
The trustees and volunteers at The Weaver’s House are grateful for the support they have received this year and wish you a peaceful Christmas season – we look forward to welcoming you next year.
