Jo Thomas – Guest Speaker

Thu 7 April at 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Jo Thomas has been invited to speak at Peak Hill Country Crafts as a Guest Speaker.   Jo is a master spinner, weaver, knitter and crocheter.

Jo has been exhibiting and demonstrating her fabulous artisan skills at the Royal Easter Show in Sydney for over two decades and continues to display her skills and work in craft groups around the Dubbo, Narromine and Peak Hill.

Jo has a love of natural fibres, especially wool.  She combs, cards, cleans, dyes and spins raw wool into various ply woollen skeins.  Jo then turns her wool into unique garments by hand knitting, weaving, crocheting.

Come along and listen to her remarkable story and journey of working and hand creating garments from raw wool.
