Hemingway & Hunt currently offer talks and demos on the following subjects: –


The Old Hand-Knitters of the Dales

River Ganseys

The Land Girls

Handspinning Through History

Great Wheel Spinning

The History of Yorkshire Knitting

The Brontes, and Their Textiles



All our talks are illustrated with audio-visuals, and also as hands-on as we can make them. We bring a selection of examples of repros of historical knitting, spinning, natural dyeing, and/or spinning wheels – as appropriate.  We have some original artefacts – depending on the talk.

We love to take lots of questions, and let you fondle our stuff.  The talks are an hour, but we don’t mind how long you ask us questions for, beyond that hour. In fact – the more, the merrier!

Talks cost £50 per hour plus petrol costs.   We are available week nights or weekends.
