Use wool, silk and beautiful textured fibres to create a Felt art 'painting'. In this workshop, you will learn how to wet feet to create a 'watercolour' background using beautiful merino wools, then the next stage uses a selection of wool, silk, bamboo and other natural fibres, playing with the textures available to add depth to your 'painting'. The final stage is needle felting, adding detail to really bring your picture to life. You will go away with a finished wool picture, and a love of the magic that is felt-making! Suitable for beginners and those with a little experience of wet felting or needle felting.
All equipment is provided. Materials - approximately £10 payable on the day. Bring an old bath towel and hand towel, and some landscape pictures for inspiration. Light refreshments will be provided - please bring a packed lunch with you.
We have a range of volunteering opportunities on offer. For as little as a couple of hours you could help out with the remnant shop, show visitors around or take sales from the gift shop, we would love to welcome you onboard!
