Afternoon felt workshop in Galgael, in Ibrox / Glasgow Thursday, the 12th of Dec. 4-5.30pm

Felting is a traditional skill that has been practiced for thousands of years. We still practice it here in GalGael and are happy to teach you how to do it!

The aim of this workshop is to learn the basic skills of traditional wet felting, using natural and colourful sheep’s wool fibers, warm water, soap and friction.

You will:
● learn to felt a flat piece e.g. a little picture,

a felted piece for a brooch or a felted flower
● experiment with colours and design
● take home a unique piece of hand made felt.

At the end of the workshop you will have your own felted items and have learned a new and traditional skill.
Please bring 1 towel and a plastic bag for your finished work.

Cost: £5 including material
Please feel free to invite your friends!
Workshop facilitator: Laryna E. Wuppermann, Fiber craft artist
