Sun’s out fun’s out: first Open Day of this year
We’re still reeling (or spinning) from the fact that the sun actually came out on Saturday after what’s been a dismal few weeks, weather-wise. We had lots of visitors, for this, our first Open Day of 2018.
We were able to get outside for displays of spinning and weaving.
Signs of life in the garden!
Lots of naturally dyed textiles on show including last year’s big project, Coventry Blue.
We had visitors of all ages, we were pleased to welcome both first-timers and familiar faces – thank you all for coming!
We had some great reviews following the Open Day:
“Wonderful place to visit and the volunteers are so full of information.”
“Just outside the city centre is this gem weavershouse beautifully and lovingly restored, house and garden. Excellent guides on hand for its monthly open days. A wonderful experience.”
Excellent little place with lots to see in a very small area. Funding is by donation and the volunteers are very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. There’s a little café with tea and coffee and home made cake. A perfect place on a spring day for an hour or so…”
Thank you to everyone who visited us, we appreciate your lovely comments and are so pleased to hear you had a good time!
As we can’t get enough of weaving, afterwards we headed to the CET Pop Up to see Permutations by Theo Wright. It’s on until April 21, so still time to catch it along with much more.
Our next Open Day is our Heritage Crafts Day on Sunday 6 May.
