In May 2015, seven Woollen Woods went on display in different outdoor venues as part of Voluntary Arts Week. Over 6,000 nature inspired woolly creations were sent in, from community groups, crafters and members of the public, and thousands of people visited to see the work on display. The Woollen Woods is a fun way to bring craft and nature together, engaging communities with their local area, both as participants and visitors. 2016 is the first year that Littleborough Arts Festival has organised Woollen Woods and we have been encouraged by the enthusiastic response of individuals and community groups that the event is now a firm fixture in our calendar of events engaging the community in creative and fun activities
We are grateful for the support and co-operation of the Friends of both Hare Hill House and Hare Hill Park. We are planning a bigger and better event for 2018 and hoping to involve lots more groups and individuals.
