Join us as we explore the similarities and differences between Dutch and Norfolk Ganseys and their wider influence on the cultures of the North Sea fishing ports. A panel of experts, including Stella Ruhe from the Netherlands has been assembled to look into the importance of these historical items and also deliver master classes on how to knit them.
