Sue Rowland, a local textile artist, will help you create beautiful, woven landscapes based on our surrounding countryside. We will use different yarns and techniques, looking at colour and texture to achieve a tactile piece of work on a card loom. Bring along your own picture of a favourite local walk or countryside scene to work from, or use the provided photos as a starting point. Weaving is suitable for everyone, so come along and get creative!

Places are limited and booking is essential.To book your place please contact Marion Sander, artsNK Visual Arts Development Coordinator, on 07887574138 or email

This workshop is part of Taking pART – a new Arts & Health partnership project by artsNK and Transported which will be delivered as a taster programme of free integrated visual arts activities in the libraries of Boston and Spalding. The activities are funded by the Mental Health Promotion Fund through the Managed Care Network and Transported and are accessible to all members of the community with a special emphasis to integrate those experiencing mild to moderate mental health issues. The activities are designed to develop new skills, build lasting relationships and encourage mutual support in a welcoming and inclusive environment.


Transported is a strategic, community-focused programme which aims to get more people in Boston Borough and South Holland enjoying and participating in arts activities.  The programme is overseen by the Centre of Culture and Creativity at the University of Lincoln, and is funded by the Creative People and Places fund from Arts Council England.
