THE WOOL AND WILLOW FESTIVAL is an exciting and highly successful selling event that brings together people from across the country and beyond to share a passion for wool, willow and natural fibres. The Festival includes high-quality exhibits with a unique selection of products using willow, wool and other natural fibres, all made by specialist producers in Wales and the Borders. The Festival is open seven days a week and is manned at all times on a rota basis by the exhibitors, and will run for four weeks this year.

There will be a programme of workshops with a range of exciting experiences, including knitting, creative textiles, crochet, felting, a variety of basket making techniques, willow garden structures and willow sculpture. Experts will be on hand to demonstrate their skills and answer questions. If you would like to be involved in these activities please contact:
