Cornish Yarn Festival


Welcome to this lovely festival. It is a festival of wool and crafts for those who like to make things.

If you like wool then this is the place to be in September, the festival is held once a year in September and the next Festival will be on 2nd and 3rd September 2017.

This is the second year of the Cornish Yarn Festival following on from our successful launch at Marazion in 2016.  It is a festival of wool and crafts for those who like to be creative.  This year we have a workshop on the Sunday called “Take the Fear out of Fair Isle” for the details click here.

It will be held at “The Lugger Hotel”, on the promenade of Penzance. So you will be able to relax, enjoy the sea views and have a chat with like-minded people.  You can also peruse the stalls and pick up those essential bargain offers.  There will be demonstrations and workshop opportunities about wool crafts.

We look forward to welcoming everybody over the weekend for a happy wool time. You will be able to see demonstrations on weaving, spinning, carding, machine knitting, and you will be able to learn how to crochet and knit.

Admission is free to everybody all weekend, so come have a pleasant day with us.
