So the last day of Travis’s time with us comes. Another blustery changeable day, but we’re all in good spirits. Another textile expert from the Trust, Davinder joins us and brings two other kinds of weaving to demonstrate and so at some points in the day, we have 4 different kinds of weaving simultaneously on the go!
Lots of our friends track us down to see the finished weaving, have another go on the loom and say goodbye to Travis. Jo presents him with a cute little cardigan she’s knitted in just a week, for his soonish to be born son and Travis decides unilaterally and rightly, that she, as the donor of all the wool used throughout the project deserves to have the first ownership of the first woven blanket.
In total 394 people come to visit the Weavers House over the weekend. It’s a huge achievement for the hard working volunteers, who are all hoarse from talking and aching from standing on the hard stone floors.
The project is now over. But the revolution has begun. More to follow…
Safe journey home Travis!
