Saltaire Arts Trail 28/29th May 2011

Thank you to everyone who helped make our two days of workshops a fantastic success! Thank you Bradford Guild for providing the wonderful carding, spinning, weaving + felting demonstrations. The people really enjoyed watching and learning, as did we.

Thank you to the A level Students at Aire Valley School  for doing a wonderful job at teaching children and adults how to make felted pieces. The students have worked very hard as part of their A Level projects. You all derserve high marks for this collaboration with Sponge Tree.
