The Friendship Ball


Like the rotation of the globe the Friendship Ball moves us all in the same direction and fibre creates a bond which encircles us. This is the essence of the SpinIN.

Since 1986, SpinIN attendees have been winding threads of one metre length onto the Friendship Ball and writing a dedication note to accompany this gesture.

The ball has acquired quite enormous proportions since its inception and is currently on display at the Bothwell Visitor Centre.
