The Big Weave - celebrating the Huguenot silk weavers of Spitalfields

The Hammersmith Morris Men
 More of a small weave but very interesting with demonstrations, selling stalls, hands on and entertainment.

The Morris Men were excellent which is more than you can say for blogger which keeps moving my images and words around. Unfortunately I didn't get the name of the Persian carpet weaver, his work was stunning. I also didn't manage to see who made the map which was stunning as well.
So sorry to all the artists who have not been acknowledged. During the week one of the original houses was open but unfortunately I was only there for the weekend.
