We were asked by The Cenotaph Trust to create a special one off cloth for the unveiling of The Founders Pillar at the Milton Keynes Rose, Campbell Park, by HRH The Duke of Cambridge earlier this month. The Weavery Workshop worked together to create the ‘Royal Fabric’ using traditional floor looms and felt honored to have been asked to create such a unique item for this special occasion.
Learning new skills is what we’re all about. Our residents, volunteers and staff all take part in the many workshops and activities throughout the year. Some of us prefer to be in the bakery, some in the tools workshops, while others have natural talents with fabric, cotton and textiles. Our Weavery Workshop is dear to us as we get to learn how to traditionally make fabric that we can then turn into cushions, rugs, throws & more. To see our creations, visit our Shop!
