You Can Lead a Horse To Water is a collaboration of craft and design between mother and Shepherd, Joanne, and daughter and Artist, Kathryn.

Together they collaborate on traditional making methods to create objects and workshops using agricultural by-products from a working hill farm based in the Peak District National Park.

The aim of the project is to promote minimising waste produce and sustainable sourcing, as well as creating a fair price for farmers and makers.

All sales of wool products go directly to the shepherds (my sister and mum) in an attempt to counteract the sharp fall in wool prices this year
