Join Rachel to hear the real life story of her Nottingham FWK ancestors, how one individual became involved with poet Lord Byron and the Luddite disturbances. Rachel’s film will be shown on YouTube – click here for the link.
“On Saturday 23rd May at 3pm as part of the Nottstopping Festival, I’ll be premiering ‘The Story of a Framework Knitter’.
The tale shares the lives of my FWK ancestors whom lived in Nottinghamshire during some turbulent times, including Thomas Bramley (my 6 x Gt Grandad) who is reputed to have met in secret with Lord Byron prior to his maiden speech in Parliament opposing the Frame Breakers Bill.
Thanks to The Framework Knitters Museum for providing the setting & some fantastic images, my Daughter Molly Carter for filming, Inspire Archives for historic pictures and the fabulous Nic at The Television Workshop for giving a voice to a Victorian Journalist, Lord Byron and more.”
Rachel filmed her story in our very own frameshop (pictured) and will be sharing it on Saturday 23rd May from 3pm to 3:30pm, as part of the Nottstopping Festival.
