Owl Class welcomed Mr Keith Early Crawford to our classroom on Friday 29th November. Keith kindly came to tell us all about the blanket making industry in Witney; Keith is a direct descendant of Charles Early, the original founder of Witney Blankets. Keith’s knowledge fitted beautifully with our current topic on local history and textiles. The children were also able to show Keith their own weaving designs on miniature looms.
It was a fascinating insight into Witney’s history and very informative.
