Textile tours 2013

We are very pleased to announce the dates for textile tours in Shetland, 2013; 9 - 13 May, 22 - 25 August and 17 - 20 October.

The four day tours take in some of the most interesting of the islands textiles, past, present and future, and the spectacular island scenery to give visitors a unique insight into how people have lived and continue to thrive in Shetland. The tours are full of ideas, inspiration, colour and drama, brought alive by guides who specialise in the textiles of the islands.

For more details, please email Andy who will be pleased to send more information when it is ready. The tours are small-scale, only eight people on each, so early booking is advised. We can advise on travel to and from Shetland and accommodation outwith the tour; participants are responsible for these arrangements themselves. The tour starts and ends in Lerwick.
