Come one, come all, register for ENTWINE National Festival (April 20-23rd) before 15th January for the earlybird registration. A wonderful programme has been planned for your fibery pleasure. Enrol for workshops & lectures, view the National Exhibition, Runway Show and Fashion Challenge. And don't forget the Marketplace for the best type of retail therapy. Catch up with old friends over your knitting and spinning, and make new friends too.
Many of the workshops are already full. Be in quick for the last spaces in Margaret Stove's lace knitting, Marilyn Rea-Menzies' tapestry weaving, Lara Nettle's sock knitting, and Rene Corder Evans' felting. Have fun with needle-felting as Liza Adams shows you how to make Christmas decorations, knights and maidens, or a gorgeous jointed bear. Needle felting is an addictive craft you will be able to do with your family and friends. Experienced Harakeke weaver Anne Daniel will take you from a beginner's flax project to the more complex twined basket. Very appropriate for Entwine Festival! Super techy tutor Lara Nettle will help you to "Unravel Ravelry" and discover where the internet can lead you in your fibrecraft journey. If you have ever wanted to spin Art Yarns, Suzy Brown will show you how. Suzy's Fibre Preparation workshop is full, but there are still spaces for beginner and advanced Art Yarns, if you are quick. All of Beth Brown-Reinsel's workshops are full to the top (*newsflash: one space now in Latvian Wristers workshop!), but there is still time to enrol for her lecture on Traditional Knitting. She has come all the way from Vermont, USA to see us, so don't miss out on this opportunity.
