Creative Lives On-air Producer for BBC CWR
Creative Lives On-air is a collaboration between BBC CWR and Creative Lives
We were asked to put on a demo of simple weaving to this local community. Rachel interviewed us for the BBC CWR programme. We also demonstrated different types of looms and weaving techniques
A very happy morning for weavers and participants
We are lucky to still be a workshop after the last two years. Thank you to everyone for their support.
It is however become necessary to increase weekly sessions to £3. Hopefully we will see you very soon.
The Workshop will be closed for the Bank Holiday.
On Saturday 26 March 2022 Heritage Crafts hosted its annual event Making Places as part of The Making of Coventry, a partnership project with Creative Lives, funded by Coventry City Council as part of Coventry City of Culture.
