Loom and Bloom has been awarded the Theo Moorman grant 2022 for weavers

The Theo Moorman Trust for Weavers has been in existence since 1990 and aims to be a valuable resource for both young and experienced weavers. The Trustees want to ensure that the grants given out enable individual weavers to maintain a high standard of work and promote weaving as an art form.

TRUSTEES : Sue Hiley Harris, Jacy Wall, Frances Pritchard.

We were privileged to be shortlisted and given the amazing opportunity to talk through the Loom & Bloom brand, what challenges we face and future ambitions with a committee of Trustees in Bristol. L&B contemporary approach and use of vibrant colours was well received by the committee and we were awarded a grant to further our work.

I am excited to soon be starting work on a new scarf collection using yarn funded by the grant and also further my skills by attending a weaving course later in the year.
