Recommendations and Endorsements


A fantastic book that offers a wealth of curriculum opportunities


Head teacher | Ripon Cathedral School

The children have talked non-stop about Malcolm's book since his visit. I often hear shuttle, treadle, weave, pick...at the most surprising times!” "An excellent curriculum resource.

Teacher | Evelyn Hume

Weaver of a Life in Colour is a fine children's book. My granddaughter Charlotte will love it, and she will learn from it.

Dr David Lewis | University of Leeds

I love the idea that 'Weaver of a Life in Colour' is a way of maintaining our textile heritage. It is a great book, and a fabulous way of educating children in to colour, and of carrying on our textile traditions and history.

Liz Green | BBC Radio Leeds
