Despite appearances, The AIR is open!

Access to the shopfront is still possible, if youre the sprightly fence-hopping, slaloming type.
Not to worry, by the talk tomorrow entry will be from the front door again!

It may have been a chilly, wet night however the enlightening and entertaining talk by Gail Hawes at Craft House warmed the audience. A very pleasant surprise was the large number who attended and they were not disappointed. Gail laid out and hung the most exquisite garments created with tradional processes of beating and weaving, pleating and the finest of embroidery. The silver jewellery was amazing. The small group of travellers of Judy Campbell, Jennie Abbot, Margaret Ford showed off their purchases and shared some funny moments too. Thank you for a great night. ... See MoreSee Less

A fantastic way to spend a chilly evening. I loved the information imparted and the amazing skills shown.

Very enjoyable and educational. Gail has a great wealth of information.

Thanks for so generously sharing your knowledge of these people and their customs. I look forward to hearing more details about their textile techniques.

Thanks Gail Hawes, loved your talk. Can’t wait to hear more 😊
