Ever wondered how that wonderful, handmade felt is made?  Look no further!  Come along to this evening workshop and we will show you how to make wet felt from a beautiful variety of merino wool fibres.

We will provide all the materials and equipment for you to make your own piece of wet felt.  You will learn all the techniques needed to try this at home and make some beautiful fabrics and objects from your own felt.  

The felt will be a flat piece and please remember it will be wet when you take it home so you will need somewhere to dry it flat at home.  We'll give you ideas about ways to embellish your piece but there will not be time for embellishments on the evening.
