Until 12 July Fire and Ice and Spinners and Weavers

Fire and Ice is a display of strong contrasting elements.  Hottest energy verses cool fun many, cuddly polar bears, penguins, and snow scenes.

Spinning & Weaving is the art of producing yarn using the raw fiber of wool, alpaca, silk, mohair and others the raw product is prepared by combing and carding. Our Spinners & Weavers have the unique skill of taking raw materials to create usable products using additional crafts such as felting, dying, knitting, crocheting where fibers can be used to make unique garments.
