Next two felt workshops on Thursday, the 3rd and on Thu. the 17th of November in GalGael

Would you like to learn wet felting or improve the skills you already gained before? Come along to the next felt workshop on Thursday, the 3rd of November and/or 2 weeks later . Both 1,5 hour workshops start at 3.15 pm and are by suggested donation: £4/£3.  Felt making is a magical transformational process from fluffy wool fibers into a solid fabric. It is the most ancient fabric making technique, with historic and prehistoric founds in different areas in the world, especially in asia. Have you heard about yurts, nomadic people in mongolia use as their housing? Felted rugs and panels were made to make these tents cosy and waterproof.
