Bakewell Wool Gathering

Hello! We've got a few quick bits of news to share with you.


We're now on Threads! It's the new social media platform from Instagram. We'll be sharing updates from there just like we do on our current platforms.


Our cotton bags are now available to order online. They'll also be at this year's show if you want to save on the postage fee.

Wool Gathering retreats

We've been thinking about ways we can grow, without adding a new festival. The calendar is already absolutely chock full of them and we don't want to overstretch ourselves.

Instead, we're considering adding new mini wool gatherings. These would be retreats
based on fibre crafts, where we get together in accommodation and run some workshops focussing on specific skills.

Each time we'd focus on a different fibre craft and have different workshops and tutors. For example, one retreat might be about crochet with a workshop on Tunisian crochet, and another might be based on needle-felting with a beginner's workshop.
We'd also allow plenty of time to sit around and work on your current project in the company of like-minded people.

If that sounds like something you'd be interested in, please fill in our survey. We want your thoughts before we make any big decisions.

2023 tickets

Don't forget that tickets are still available for this year's show! It's £5.00 for a day ticket or £8.00 for the weekend. If you have a prepaid ticket you get priority entry at 10am.
