Open Day success
A medieval beauty awakens after a long slumber!
It was a long time coming, but the first Open Day of 2021 was enjoyed by visitors and volunteers alike. This was our first day in the best part of two years! We wanted to get back into the swing of things carefully, to benefit both our staff and guests alike, and we were pleased that everything went so smoothly. A huge thank you is owed to all our volunteers and our visitors for making things go so well – THANK YOU!
We had the lower part of The Weaver’s House open to visit in small groups and the garden had displays and demonstrations to enjoy. We had a steady amount of visitors dropping in through the day, with many people spending quite a bit of time in the garden which is looking stunning at the moment.
We weren’t able to open the small ‘solar’ working room which contains the loom, but as usual, it was free to enter, and we hope people will be able to return to see anything they have missed.
As well as display by the spinners, we also had natural dyes, raw wool and eco-printing displays. Find out how to do your own eco-printing here.
We intend to open in August and also in September for Heritage Open Days, please stay tuned for announcements!
