A summer holiday at Halsway Manor in which to share textile crafting skills, songs and stories. With host Meg Rose and very special guest the multi-talented Tim Van Eyken.
The week presents a unique opportunity to develop your own craft projects in a supportive and convivial atmosphere, working with our hands whilst exploring related aspects of folk music, song and story telling. This is not an instructional course as such. Presentations on various topics of interest and techniques are programmed throughout the week. The emphasis will be on learning from each other by show and tell and there will be free time to walk and relax too.
Who is it for?
The week is aimed at textile crafters and artists of any level of experience – complete beginners, happy hobbyists, dedicated professional and anyone in between – who would like a few days in a lovely setting to develop their craft project, share their skills and learn from others.
You do not have to be a singer, musician or storyteller, but if you are please bring your instruments, songs and stories to share – anything craft-related especially well received!
We would also like to make it absolutely clear that, while many of these crafts are associated with women and women’s work, ALL are welcome!
Meg Rose has taught mixed crafts for many years and also has a long association with Halsway Manor, including hosting many singing courses.
