As part of Luminate Festival and the Scottish International Storytelling Festival, Jan Bee Brown spins yarns from around the world inspired by the Daughters of Penelope exhibition, with Broughton Spinners as special guests.

From sewing nettle shirts for seven swans to an eight legged spidery curse passed down the generations, come and hear Jan weave her stories of sleeping princesses and tricky tricksters, then join in and make a spider diagram to help you tell your own spooky stories just in time for Hallowe’en. The Broughton Spinners will demonstrate traditional spinning skills. Perfect fun for all the family; grandparents and children can enjoy the stories as well as trying to spin a yarn for themselves!

This event will have hearing loop amplifier kits can be used with T loop option too. Due to a limited number of kits, please let Dovecot know if you require one in advance.

This event is free but ticketed. Please register via Eventbrite.
