At WoolNEss our intentions, ideals, application and selection processes and involvement opportunities have always been entirely without prejudice.
We have always intended our online and physical spaces to be welcoming and safe for crafters from every background to share their creative talents.
If you identify as male, female, non-binary, LGBTQ+ - You are welcome, respected and valued.
If you identify as BIPOC or BAME - You are welcome, respected and valued.
If you suffer from mental health issues, chronic conditions or disabilities (seen or unseen) - You are welcome, respected and valued.
Whatever your religious or political beliefs - You are welcome, respected and valued.
We believe we are working towards a truly inclusive event but we are constantly learning and developing and in light of the incredibly important work being done to eliminate racism and the exclusion of minority groups, particularly in the knitting community, we have been working hard in the background both locally and nationally to achieve a truly diverse and safe space at WoolNEss Festival.
If you have any suggestions on how we can achieve this please email us at [email protected]
