Taking it Slow: Crafting with Local Fibres with Marina Skua

This talk is part of our Mill Open Weekend celebrations.

You might have heard about the idea of ‘farm to table’: tracing our food from where it’s grown, processed and packaged to when it reaches our kitchens. In this talk, Marina will explore the concept of ‘farm to wardrobe’ and making knitwear and textiles in a slower, more considered way to benefit people and the planet.

Marina will be bringing along both professional and personal samples and projects, from knitwear designs in commercial yarns to zero-waste garments that she has carded, spun, woven and sewn herself. What a talented lady! She’ll also be discussing how understanding the processes and connections in our crafts, create items that are meaningful and beneficial, both to ourselves and the environment.
