Belper Arts Trail: Community Crafts at t' Mill
by Tom Wyke
Community Crafts at t' Mill:
At Strutt’s North Mill Museum on Sunday 1st and Monday 2nd May there will be a giant French Knitting Community Participation Activity inside the North Mill Museum during the Belper Arts Trail.
Visitors to the Mill will be able to participate in the creation of large sections of French Knitting, the results of which will be transformed into soft furnishings in the museum’s café area. We welcome the addition of any old/used wool from participants such as old jumpers that have reached the end of their lives and would like to be unpicked and become part of the project, so bring them in on the day or before.
During the Arts Trail you will also be able to have a go at weaving, and make some bookmarks or small place mats using recycled fabric, plastic and wool.
On Sunday 1st May see some wool spinners in action from the Derbyshire Guild of Weavers Spinners & Dyers."
