Join us at Flag Fen for a weekend of traditional textile making using Soay and other sheep’s locks. There will be expert demonstrations of the spinning wheel, drop spindle spinning, nalbinding and various types of loom weaving.

Talk to local experts who will have samples of different types of natural fleeces available as well as beautiful handmade wares for sale.

Flag Fen is home to its very own flock of Soay sheep, the most primitive breed of sheep in Britain. Very similar sheep would have grazed the pastures around Flag Fen between 4200BC- 1000BC.

Normal admission prices apply (£6 adults/ £3 Children/ £15 Family ticket / Annual pass holders free)
