More Putney Craft Tour

Here are some photos from the Putney Craft Tour that were not available when I made the previous post:

Gail showing Brendon the scouring apparatus
The "picking" operation
Part of the "carding" machinery
The spinning machine
Bobbins in the spinning operation
An old photo showing children operating the machines - common in the early 20th century
I forget the exact name for this machine but it is part of the final process

When the wool comes from! And also the source of some sheep cheese we got
Joshua Letourneau working on creating a marble
Bob Burch heating a bowl
Bob Burch shaping a molten bowl
The potters wheel at the glass blowers studio. Brendon made this photo
