Regular readers of this blog will be familiar with Malcolm the Weaver, the colourful character from the Weaver of a Life in Colour and The Rainbow that Mixed Colours and the Moon that Shone Dark children’s books. Written by SDC member Malcolm Campbell and published by the SDC, the books introduce children to the world of colour and textiles.
The Malcolm the Weaver project has really taken off in the last year. Following a sponsorship model the SDC have garnered support from a diverse range of companies and individuals in order to give the books to schools for free. Over 2,000 books were sponsored in 2016 and sent to schools in Yorkshire, the London region, Scotland and as far afield as Australia!
