From Fleece to Felt July 11th @ 10-4pm

An interactive day exploring all things woolly.

We will start by meeting my Blue Faced Leicester sheep, and discussing what looking after a micro flock realistically entails.

Moving into the workshop, you will learn to card wool, and which part of the fleece is best to use.

After lunch, we will then move into the garden, finding plants which can be used effectively to dye wool.

Back in the workshop, we will do some samples of plant dyeing using my sheep’s fleece.  Lastly, you will make a sample of felt to take home, using my plant dyed wool.

So this one day workshop will teach you everything you need to start your journey from fleece to felt!

Bring wellies and wear old clothes, a packed lunch, and a bag for your wet piece of felt. Fee includes all materials.
