Sara & Paul Ellis Reid are Innerspiral, our resident fibre-artists who are also hula-hooping experts (and they sell them at the market too). On June 9th we’re lucky enough to have them teaching THREE FREE hooping workshops in the foyer. Read on to find our more about them from Sara, along with details of how to join in the hooping!
“As fibre artists, Paul and I create a range of natural wool based hats, clothes and accessories using a combination of hand spinning, felt making and crochet techniques. As hoop dancers we hand make and tape dance hoops for adults and children. We run workshops in our fibre arts as well as workshops and parties with our hoops; we also run a walkabout entertainment hoop party workshop at festivals and events with our distinctive colourful push cart. Famous customers? Brian Froud of Dark Crystal fame bought a felted pixie hood from us last year at Faery Fest! We’ve been featured in Juno magazine recently and we are currently leading wool supplier, Wingham Wool’s, “Featured Artist”.
We’re regulars at the Bath Artisan Market, It’s got a really buzzing vibe and a great eclectic selection of wares, including clothes, accessories and decor, vintage, handmade, and good food. Every month is different with exciting new events and entertainment happening so we always look forward to it! This month (June 9th) we are teaching customers how to hula-hoop for free, come and find us at our stall which is on the corner of the square as you enter from the foyer. The classes are at 11am, 2pm and 3pm –first come, first served so come and put your name down. Great for kids or adults!”
