Felt like a good idea

This afternoon I popped into the National Conservation Centre’s felt making workshop.

The participants all assured me that they were complete beginners who had never made felt before, which was hard to believe when I saw their colourful creations.

One lady was enjoying felt-making so much she told me that she would have a go at making more at home with her granddaughter.

If these pictures have inspired you to get creative you’ll be pleased to hear that the National Conservation Centre runs a variety of different free afternoon workshops, including calligraphy and mosaic making.

Have a look at the what’s on listings for details of future workshops. No experience is necessary and materials are provided, but you might need to book in advance for some sessions.
