  4. Spinning the Colours of Lakeland Colour I revel in’ – the words of Annie Garnett, the creative Arts and Crafts designer and entrepreneur who became a key figure in the revival of hand spinning and weaving in the Lake District. The exhibition is based on the unique archives of the Museum of Lakeland Life and Industry in Kendal and will describe the establishment and ethos of Annie Garnett’s Spinnery workshops in Bowness-on-Windermere. It will examine how she created employment for up to a hundred women, working at home in cottages and farmhouses, to hand-spin flax and silk yarns for weaving into wonderfully coloured textiles, some richly embroidered, for making into dresses and soft furnishings of all kinds. These won numerous star prizes at important regional and national exhibitions and were purchased not only by local Lakeland folk, but also by the rich and famous from far and wide, including royalty, with some customers being as far away as the United States of America. The exhibition will include examples of Annie Garnett’s designs on paper and the resulting silks, embroideries and textiles. It will also explore the inspiration for the forms and colours of these in the landscape and skies of Lakeland and especially in the fascinating garden created by Annie close to the Spinnery and once described by an American journalist as ‘A colour laboratory in the English lake region’.
