What is The Glasgow School of Yarn, you ask?
It started life as a yarny party to celebrate The Yarn Cake's first birthday, back in 2011! Through a series of coincidences, sheer dumb luck and a fair amount of hard work, we found ourselves hosting a two day event in collaboration with the Mackintosh Society in the beautiful Mackintosh Church. We had a fabulous, if small by today's standards, marketplace showcasing mostly local talent. We somehow convinced an amazing roster of tutors to come and teach at a newbie event: Amy Singer of Knitty and Stephen West, who both joined in the celebrations with their own birthdays; as well as Carol Feller and Ann Kingstone. It was such a success we kept going, annually, until 2015...at which point organiser Antje had a wean and life got significantly more complicated. So we went on hiatus for a few years...but the child is significantly less hands on, and 2020 seemed a good time to bring GSoY back. Obviously, that didn't quite go to plan, but our event last year was a resounding success and we're hoping to make 2022 even better!
And we're already plotting for 2023!
