This is the 7th year of Shetland Wool Week and we have been busy the whole year preparing an exciting programme of events for you. There will be an extensive range of exhibitions, classes, workshops, tours and lectures, covering many different subjects including weaving, spinning, dyeing, Fair Isle and lace knitting as well as lots of other fascinating subjects.
Events will take place from Fair Isle right up to Shetland’s most northerly island of Unst, famous for its beautiful lacework, with many locations in between.
The bookings open today (Tuesday 24th May) at 1pm BST.
This year we are using The Little Box Office and those of you who have purchased a SWW Membership already know the system. To book tickets for classes you do not have to create an account, all you need to do is add tickets to your shopping basket and then check out.
It will also be possible to book by phone but please note that we are a small team so we advise you to book online to avoid any delays. In case you are unable to book online the phone number is +44 (0)1595 980100. On Tuesday afternoon it will also be possible to book in person at Shetland Museum and Archives.
We hope you find this year’s selection of events inspiring and we look forward to seeing you in Shetland in September.
Best wishes from the Shetland Wool Week team
