Jen Arnall-Culliford: Sharing Your Craft in Print

Jen Arnall-Culliford, co-founder of Arnall-Culliford Knitwear Ltd, is a knitwear technical editor, knitting tutor, and all round woolly enthusiast.

In 2017, Arnall-Culliford Knitwear Ltd published its first knitting book, A Year of Techniques, which was swiftly followed by Something New to Learn About Cables and Something New to Learn About Lace.

The publishing projects were a new string to Jen’s (highly creative) bow, and learning how to pull together a beautifully designed and professionally put-together book was a learning curve.

Come and join Jen, as she talks about the books, her creative life in knitting, and her best tips for other creatives planning to bring their own artistic passion into print.

The event is free but booking is advised as space is limited. You can reserve your place by calling 01373 473111, emailing winstonebooks3@gmail.com or by popping into the shop.

The Life of Stuff : A memoir about the mess we leave behind

9780857525406.jpg

Susannah will be with us talking about her new book which explores loss, grief and hoarding, through the story of her own relationship with her mother, and her experiences clearing up her mother's crammed and dilapidated house after she died.

A deeply personal memoir about mourning and the shoring up of possessions against the losses and griefs of life, which also raises universal questions about what makes us the people we are. What do our possessions say about us? Why do we project such meaning onto them? And what painful circumstances turn someone who loves their home and the stuff it contains into an incurable hoarder who ends their days in squalor?
