Come and learn about fleece and felt something beautiful. We mostly use local Shetland fleece, which we have sorted and naturally dyed using local and ancient imported plant materials. On our weekend courses you can choose to make one large item, such as a a wall hanging or a Mongolian style floor mat, or perhaps you prefer to make a smaller item such as bags, purses or brooches. We teach wet felting techniques; hand felting, rolling and throwing. I spent some time in Mongolia, learning ancient techniques of felt-making over there. You can then finish it off by needle felting in any details you would like. Whichever, techniques you prefer they are all great fun and produce wonderful results! All our courses are based in the barn at Crochail woods, which is 100 acres of managed woodland in Strathglass on the edge of Cannich not far from Glen Affric in the Highlands of Scotland.
