Free ‘Learn to weave’ events in Doncaster

There will be free ‘Learn to Weave’ events in Doncaster every Friday in October from 1:30-3:30pm.

People are invited to attend these workshops as part of a sculptural project to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the historic Mayflower voyage of 1620.

The trainer will be artist Rachel Carter.  The workshops are being hosted by Doncaster Community Arts, at The Point on South Parade.

Rachel is one of a number of creative artists who’re supported by Arts Council England and endorsed by Mayflower 400 as being part of the Spirit of Mayflower project.

2020 is the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower’s historic voyage, when she sailed from England to America, carrying passengers in search of a new life in a new colony.  Those passengers are now known as the Pilgrims, and many of them have their origins in rural areas of Nottinghamshire, South Yorkshire and Lincolnshire – known as the Pilgrim Roots region.

Mary Vickers moved to North East Lincolnshire in 2010, from the Wiltshire/Hampshire border, to become Urban and Industrial Chaplain NELincs. Made redundant in 2017, she's maintained many of her connections within the business, faith, and other local communities. She's also decided to stay here rather than return to either the south or her husband's native Yorkshire, so that she can continue to enjoy and help promote the positives of NELincs.
