Alston Hall Reteat

I’m just back from tutoring a workshop at Alston Hall for the Bradford and District/Bowland/Craven Guilds of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers.  It’s always a pleasure to go to Alston Hall, the accommodation is lovely, the staff are delightful and the company on the Retreat is wonderful!

This year I was lucky enough to have been asked to tutor, as the last time I was there was in 2002 on a Twisted Braid course and before that in 2001 on a Theo Moorman course.

My 15 students included one man, Pete, and an elderly lady of 92, Betty, who you would never have believed was that age.  All had been rather worried about the design aspect, but once they had gone through the processes, all admitted they would not have been able to produce the yarns they did.  So rather than describe everything, here is a slide show of everything they did!
