The World Wide Weave Exhibition
An awe-inspiring series of 75 wall-hangings in weaving, tapestry, felting and other techniques marks Camphill's 75th anniversary 1940-2015. They have been created specially for the exhibition by 65 textile workshops in 19 countries worldwide. The completed panels are being displayed together to celebrate the manifold creative life of communities in the UK and Ireland and in other regions. Communities taking part are in England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland, Northern Ireland, France, Netherlands, Switzerland, Austria, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Russia, India, Vietnam, South Africa, United States and Canada.
Where can it be seen?
The work is being shown in 20 locations in the UK and Ireland, in public buildings, art galleries and museums. In 2016 it will then travel abroad, to Switzerland, Norway and the United States.

FBD Difference Day - Dunshane June 2015
The fabulous Difference Day organisation hooked up with our charity partner FBD Insurance, to deliver another fantastic project in one of our Communities in June 2015. Dunshane is the lucky recipient this time and around 130 FBD staff took part in developing a pathway and all weather five-a-side football pitch with basketball practice court - and all in one incredible day! Fantastic!!!
