Volunteer Opportunity – Weaving and Spinning

 

As a Working Wool Museum, Coldharbour Mill produces yarns and fabrics on 19th century machinery, both to demonstrate the processes to visitors and to provide products which are sold in the Mill Shop to generate much-needed funds for the Museum to continue its heritage work.

We are looking for volunteers to help make our artisan yarn and cloth.  All we you need is enthusiasm and commitment and we’ll train you on our beautiful heritage machinery.

If you would like to discuss further or arrange a Taster Session please contact Ben Fox: Volunteer Coordinator ben.fox@coldharbourmill.org.uk
