Active Travel Hub Presents - Knit 1, Bike 1 Weaving workshop and Exhibition

As part of the amazing Knit 1, Bike 1 Exhibition that will be held at The Active Travel Hub for 2 weeks in September, The Hub will also be holding a beginners Weaving workshop with Janet Renouf-Miller on the 26th September. 

The weaving workshop will be an introduction to weaving and will last around 2 1/2 hours followed by an optional short bike ride on the National Cycle Network. Manual or electric bikes can be borrowed for the bike ride and it will last around 1 hour. 

The Knit 1, Bike 1 exhibition showcases the work of Janet Renouf-Miller, who cycled round Scotland on a Brompton folding bicycle, delivering 21 workshops on the way. 

Not only that, she knitted and crocheted what she saw, anything from the Glenfinnan Viaduct to her bicycle and a cooked breakfast. AND she wrote a book about it!

Janet was nominated as one of the top 100 women in cycling by cycling UK for the work she did to spread the word about cycling.


Please call: 01563 532416 to reserve you place as spaces are limited. Free admission.
