The Handspinner is excited to welcome Textile Artist Janet Renouf-Miller who will be visiting the beautiful Isle of Skye on her Knit 1 Bike 1 knitting and crochet journey round Scotland. She sets off from Dalmellington in Ayrshire on 29th of June and will be knitting and crocheting what she sees on the way. The trip will result in a book about the journey and an exhibition of the work produced.
Janet is delivering free mini workshops as she travels and there will be one at The Handspinner Having Fun, Broadford, Isle of Skye on Monday 20th July from 2-4pm. The topic will be Continental Knitting and help with stuck projects/problems. This workshop is FREE but booking is required: Contact Bev Scholefield at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone the shop.
Janet says: ‘The journey is very much an artistic meander rather than a ‘get there quick’ thing and will take 68 days in total. It will be done on a Brompton folding bicycle.’
See Janet’s website and blog for further details of the tour.
