  Glasu Project Reports










LambsDeveloping the Wool and Sheepskin industry in Powys is a co-operative project with 2 other LEADER+ groups, the Fells and Dales in Cumbria and North Antrim LEADER+ in Northern Ireland. The aim of the project is to aid the development of the wool and sheepskin industry in all three areas. The project contains elements that all three groups work on (Joint Actions) and elements that happen in the respective areas.

The joint actions will include regular meetings between groups to share best practice and ideas, the establishment of an archive of sheepskins from each area, a number of seminars to raise the awareness of sheepskins and the development of a best practice preservation protocol for wool on sheepskins.

Also taking place under this project will be the following activities -

Wonderwool Wales
SheepA new highlight of the Smallholder at the Royal Welsh Showground Llanelwedd, Builth Wells. WONDERWOOL WALES is an exciting new event to bring together people from near and far who share a passion for wool and natural fibres and to showcase the outstanding quality and versatility of fibres, products and skills that form the backbone of the stunning array of related industries in Wales.

Aiming to complement the existing festival elements, WONDERWOOL WALES will feature exhibitions, promotions, displays and trade stands from a broad selection of organisations, producers and crafts as well as the WOOL SCHOOL where information, demonstrations and classes will be available and an exhibition of winners' works from the WONDER OF WOOL competition.
