Learn how to make your very own woollen bunting that says a name or a message of your design. You can then use it year after year for annual celebrations, or use it to decorate a child's bedroom, alternatively Mr & Mrs bunting would be a perfect keepsake decoration at a wedding! This is something you could treasure for many years after making.
We will set up camp under a tree (and marquee depending on the weather) in the field and enjoy the views of the hills while we felt. You will begin by processing local wool by hand using carding techniques with a specialised drum carder and hand carders. Then you will felt a large flat panel using wet-felting techniques. While we wait for the felt to dry we can enjoy lunch- please bring your own. I will supply tea and cake! After lunch, we can needle felt the name/message onto the bunting and attach it to hessian ribbon.
