As from January 21st 2013, our base will be The Big Knit Centre & Art Studio at Home Farm, Miford, Staffordshire.Home Farm is situated in the picturesque village of Milford, 5 minutes from our former base at Shugborough. Our new base will give us a larger space for our textile studio and for workshops, plus a space for Ingrid’s painting studio and storage for our Big Knit Yarn. As demand grows, so does the demand for space and this is what Home Farm will give to us.

We will be open by appointment only so please do contact us if you would like to visit.

Passing visitors will be welcome if Ingrid is working in the studio. Home Farm is also home to half a dozen other businesses, all operating autonomously, including The Vintage Barn, a Nail Parlour, Hairdressing salon, Equestrian supplies and a Dog Grooming Parlour. Red Box web design is also located at Home Farm. So, when you visit, there will be plenty to see and experience.We hope to see you soon!

Rushwork information needed….any help ??

Hello!


Greetings from Finland!


We are having a small project about how to find old and new ways to use common bulrush (Schoenoplectus lacustris).

The project is ran by our village, Mankila, small village near Oulu in Northern Finland with lake that has lots of bulrush and we haven’t been so happy about it. This is why we want to find positive ways of thinking and using it.

Our project is ending at the end of December, so I would appreciate if You have some information for me soon.


I was happy to find some old video about rushwork (collecting, storing, weaving) from YouTube, and in the same video there was the information that in Ireland you’ve used to have rush boats also! This is very interesting, since we have been planning to make our own boat, inspired by Thor Heyerdahl. In this video, there was Irish name for the boat, but sorry to say, I couldn’t really catch it. How would you spell it?  (” Glee Holloga”? / “flood draft”?)


This is surprising, I’ve learned that there are rush boats in Iraq, Etiopia, and also in Sisily, Italy. But I haven’t seen any information about Irish boats.


-Where could I find more information of Irish rushwork, and specially boat making?

Do you know if there is still know-how to make a boat?


In Finland it is becoming quite rare skill (to harvest, store and weave bulrush), and only few people do rushwork products for sale. Still people are very curious about the material.


I’m looking forward hearing from you,

and keeping my fingers crossed. Please forward this message to anyone who knows about the topic.
