We are launching - supported by Government Members and Industry Bodies - the first ever Eisteddfod dedicated to Wool.
Details to follow in 2023 for the open call
Remember it is free to join our membership and be first to know more.
3 of our Board Members at WWA are Mentors available via the Gwnaed a Gwlan mentoring scheme (Jacqui, Anna and Nerys). You can get up to 24 hours free mentoring if you work with wool in Wales (available until April 2023), simply apply and ask for our mentors who are all taking on new Mentees for the New Year. Recently the team published a fantastic review from one of Jacqui's mentees which said it was "the best 24 hours for her business". Each Mentor has specific skill sets to help your business - from legal, business, branding, weaving, sheep management and more.
You can find out more via Gwnaed a Gwlan website or ask us about how we helped at Ffleece website and how to apply
