As the daylight shrinks and the shadows lengthen, courie in for a family friendly series of gansey folklore and magical stories!
Collaborative artist and renowned Scottish storyteller Jan Bee Brown will tell three gansey and fisherfolk-inspired stories!
The first story is ’Three Ply’ told in the Scottish traditional: ‘eye to eye, mind to mind and heart to heart’. Following a period of research at the Scottish Fisheries Museum and inspired by two traditional Scottish Folk Tales, Jan’s story has been created bespoke for the Knitting the Herring project. It was fashioned in the spirit of gansey knitting - unravelling and reknitting, combining stories like stitches to create something new to share.
Tune in to hear ‘Three Ply’ and enjoy the magical tale at https://scottishgansey.org.uk/news-and-events/herring-tales/
