Wool Day in Broadway

All day event with talks and demonstrations

Admission: Included in the cost of your museum ticket

Time: All Day, 10.00am – 5.00pm (Last entry at 4.30pm)

A day of wool displays and talks to celebrate Broadway’s wool heritage.
Join Judy Buckingham and Ruth Power, experienced weavers, who will demonstrate and explain the craft of hand spinning and weaving wool from the raw fleece to the finished article. Members of the Northleach Spinners and Weavers group will also be at the museum to help us to discover the story ‘From Sheep to Shop’.
Children are welcome to have a go at teasing and carding the wool.

There will also be stalls selling food and drink, a bookstall, and lots of wool related gifts to buy in the shop.
