Call Out to Crafters — Woollen Woods at Stretton Watermill

Stretton Mill 2

Why?
To celebrate the 40th year since its restoration Stretton Watermill is planning a series of events to link to its local community and beyond. The first event will be Woollen Woods.

What?
The mill would like to link to this year's Voluntary Arts Festival by creating a Woollen Wood in its grounds. Last year the festival had 11 Woollen Woods amongst its 400 events across the country and we want to be part of it this year!
So we are calling out to crafters out there to create something to be part of our woolly outdoor exhibition. Could you crochet a ladybird, felt a rabbit or knit a robin? We'd love to invite you to contribute a little woollen 'something' on the theme of 'Native Woodland Flora and Fauna' to this fantastic site.
