All ages from the local community and residents of South Lakes Housing joined forces to create some riotous, colour splashing felt.  It was so hot we had to work in the shade!  Stitched into a windmill structure, this piece not only celebrates the fun we had at two inclusive community workshops, but is also part  of the history of Dr. Manning’s yard.  The Braithwaite family had a windmill to grind bark that was imported from around the world to create different coloured dyes for Kendal’s textile trade.

Yarns in the Yards Banners:  Look out for our green and purple banners marking the entrance to the yards.  Paintwork by local children,volunteers and stitching work by Monica Tweddell, Tomoko Kawano and artist Kate Reid.
