Visitors and passers-by during September will have noticed our beautiful gold-themed window.
The woven gold decorations are for Be Bold Go Gold in memory of Ben Crowther. Ben loved visiting us, and had some happy times here. In honour of him, The Weavers’ Workshop created the display to support Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
The Workshop will be closed on August Bank Holiday 26th August 2019
Open on Thursday morning as usual at 10 a.m.
Herbert Art Gallery 15th June – this event went really well with the public joining in with weaving activities. Other activities took place included sketch Coventry, singing, dancing and crafts.
Sketch Coventry seems to have captured a couple of us on our stall.
The project has been displayed and worked on by members of the workshop and members of the public at Coventry Cathedral. Notice how the work and the windows compliment each other. Beautiful.
An interesting project, much enjoyed by participants
The Workshop will be closed on Monday 6th and Monday 27th May.
The Weavers’ Workshop will be closed on Easter Monday
