Join us to learn the ancient craft of felt making, a process that has been around long before spinning or weaving wool began.
You will be guided through the process to make your very own fabric and you will be shown how to make flat decorative pieces of artwork, experiment with 3D felting and needle felting.
These techniques will enable you to produce handbags, slippers, vessels and much; much more.
This a fun and informal course that will teach you a wonderful and unique craft.
The course is suitable for all levels and no experience is necessary.
