Weaving the Malachi’s Grand Drape


With a nod to the Oberon building’s past a wool handler’s warehouse, Emma Shepherd from Sundance Studio will create a commissioned weaving for the Malachi’s newly dressed stage. During the spring school holiday fortnight, Emma will set up her eight-shaft loom and weave her design in 100% wool.

Alongside Emma, local wool spinners will set up their spinning wheels to make yarn from fleeces donated by local farmer Cress Dawson.

Come and visit the craftspeople working in-situ and learn about the ancient craft of spinning and weaving.  See the interiors of the refurbished Hall and find out more about the role of textiles in theatre.
