Norman Kennedy at Knockando Woolmill

Posted on July 17, 2014 by Emma Nicolson

Norman Kennedy, renowned spinner and weaver, joined us at the Woolmill today for a song and a short lesson in spinning. 

Originally hailing from Aberdeen, Norman spent five years as Master Weaver in Colonial Williamsburg before settling inVermont and founding the Marshfield School of Weaving. The school focuses on handing down the traditions of generations past, and teaching time honoured skills and methods.
