Silverdale and Arnside Art and Craft Trail

lancs and lakes guild scarf challenge

We spun and wove this scarf from scratch at the Trail, raising over £100 for the PTA.


We are sorry we won’t be at the Art Trail this year. It’s a really vibrant, community-run event, so if you are in the area, or on your way to Woolfest, it’s well worth calling in. for further information.

In 2015 we attended the Westmorland show for the first time and won 1st place for the Rural Crafts exhibition and demonstration.

We usually send someone to demonstrate in the Arts and Crafts marquee – but we may be on the Kendal Wool Gathering stand.
