Description: Christina Sanders (Creative Walkshops) and Carolyn Griffiths, author of 'Woad to This' combine forces to curate a creative walk through Frome’s historical 18th century wool industry. A playful and captivating immersion into the town’s cloth trade, drawing on the senses and imagination as we wander between weavers’ cottages, wool drying stoves, mills, and meadows, re-imagining the lives of weavers and cloth-workers. The walk stops at sites of specific imaginings to encounter echoes of the past to inspire you to write, sketch and weave. www.woadtothis.com Meet in the courtyard of Black Swan Cafe
