IS THERE A NEW WORLD FOR WOOL? By Bridget Cole

Talk  |  Seated

BRIDGET COLE: A Farmer all her life, mainly in partnership with her husband for 40yrs until his death in 2013, after which Bridget handed over their biodiverse Dartmoor Farms to her sons Neil and Mathew. She also ran a farm tourism business and worked to promote farm tourism in Devon. She then enrolled as a student at Arts University Plymouth, passing out in 2020 with a Bachelor of Arts(Hons) in Fashion & Design majoring on wool.

TALK: With a passion for creating garments from a young age Bridget’s journey through university was not what she thought; getting her frustrated at the lack of understanding and use of sheep wool that is a by-product of the sheep meat industry.

This talk will inform you a little of the journey and what she has explored in the world of sheep wool and her vision of a local wool industry.
