Weaving at the Denny Centre, 22 March

Afternoon weaving session at the Denny Centre, a specialist day service run by Age Concern, Norfolk. 
I took the Saori Piccolo loom and lots of yarn and fibres to play with. It was an enlightnening session, while weaving on the loom, we heard stories from when people were younger, about the mills in Manchester, the sheep in the next door field and how England used to be. It was amazing to hear what stories the simple act of weaving brought up and how a traditional craft can bring to light distant memories that have not been thought about for years. Thank you all for your stories.
