Lana Norman – (Wool Craft)

  • Peg Loom Weaving and Felting are Lana’s main themes
  • Local working farmer with Herdwick sheep, goats, free range hens etc.
  • Heavily involved with the local life of the area, exhibiting and winning numerous prizes at local shows and representing the Herdwick Sheep Breeders’ Association

Lana also happens to be one of our talented Higham gardeners – wool craft is what she practices both at Higham and in the real world. It is something that can be both artistic and fun, as well as reflecting traditional techniques in utilising wool as a yarn, and in its felted form. Lana’s courses are suitable for everybody whether they have done something like this before or not. Authentic, enjoyable and tremendously rewarding.
