We would like to offer a day for those interested in felt making. We are open to suggestions as to what you might like to make, maybe a felt accessory or scarf. Some may prefer to try the technique of needlefelting to make a small item. When we know your preferences we can contact a suitable tutor or tutors.
Please Contact us if you have suggestions or preferences
