Culture Day 2015!

Posted on September 29, 2015 by Emma Nicolson

A fabulously fun day was spent in Forres meeting lots of new folk from near and far and getting creative as part of Findhorn Bay Arts' Culture Day!

Lara and her sister Alina joined us to have a go on the giant French Kntter, and ended up teaching the group how to finger knit!

We spent the day not only finger knitting but arm knitting, crocheting, stick weaving and creating big fabric with our giant French knitter we then had a lot of laughs yarn bombing the street furniture around Market Green.

Culture day also saw us launch our Knockando Woolmill activities tent, so next time your out and about at an event look out for our bright red tent with jaunty tweed bunting, your guaranteed to have fun and get hands on with funky textile activities.

A big thank you to all the volunteers who made the day so much fun and shared their skills and all the folk who came and spent time with us making fabrics and yarning up Forres!
