We are passionate about passing on textile skills to others and encouraging a respectful and resourceful way of living in harmony with nature and humankind.  Alongside our regular programme of classes at Fabrications, Barley Massey has been invited to give numerous talks and practical workshops in schools, universities, galleries, festivals, events and overseen a number of community projects with vulnerable adults. Barley has also been working as a “Super Crafter” with the “Love your Clothes” campaign since it’s inception in 2014 in a variety of ways of engagement. Another partnership has been with Upper Street Events (formerly Twisted Thread) working as a tutor in the “Learning Curve” area of their textile shows. Also in the concept creation, management and delivery of educational “feature areas” within their shows including our “Upcycling Academy” (Knitting & Stitching Shows) and most recently “The Drop in Clinic” (Sewing Bee Live show, Excel)
