There are a few things in life that I dislike- being cold is one of those- therefore it goes without saying that anything to do with wool is right up my street- add some craft, and this year a few bicycles and this is an event I can get quite excited about!
Last year I posted about wool week and the campaign at London zoo and this year the fun carries on with events all over the capital. It all kicks off with a ‘Wool ride’ on Sunday 5th October; 300 Wool loving cyclists cycling 13.4 miles around London and its most famous land marks raising awareness for the cause. Finishing up at Potters field where guests can have their bikes made over in the woollen workshop- with prizes for the best bicycle as well as live music, food, and talks about textiles and demonstrations. You can sign up for a free ticket in the Tweet below
As well as all this there will be a week of activities with some of the UK’s biggest brands all taking part- including
- A scarf knit-a-thon in Brora’s flagship store on Symons Street where consumers
are encouraged to pitch in and contribute towards the making of a bespoke giant scarf that will be auctioned off for charity.
- Wool master-classes at John lewis in Oxford street
- Wool interior exhibits in London’s Southwark Cathedral (5th – 12th October 10am – 7pm daily (8pm on Thursday) Admission is free.)
