A group of Artists and Crafts people working in Radnorshire who come together to
promote the handmade and artisan crafts. Inspired by the most beautiful countryside
we reflect our appreciation for our surroundings by working in natural materials,
drawing from traditional crafts to create something new for today.
Plans for 2023,
We are looking forward to spring and announcing events for the year.
And looking forward to taking the building to the next stage, in spring we will be
holding a fundraising event to build a loom shed for a recent addition to the family a
Hattersly domestic, a loom used in Wales in some of the small mills to weave narrow
loom flannels but more famously the loom used by the crofters on Harris these are
not power looms they are powered by foot pedals so were infinitely suited to rural
locations without power
Our loom is not yet installed as she needs us to build a looms shed to go in, however this one is the proud property of The Queen Street Mill Museum in Lancashire.
As soon as spring starts we hope also to begin work on the Dye Garden
Meanwhile in other parts of the building the research continues .

We will get back to you the following morning.
