Wet felt workshop 4.Nov. 10.00-13.00

Felted wrist cuffs
Create a seamless felt or a flat felt:
Felt making is a traditional technique to create a fabric out of sheep's wool fibres, using warm water, soap and friction.
In this felt workshop you will learn the skill of wet felting or improve your existing felting skills.
You’ll start with colourful fluffy, soft wool fibres and transform those into a firm, felted, useful item, like a seamless pouch, or seamless wrist cuffs or a flat felt. It can be a fantastic opportunity to create a very unique gift. It's fun and rewarding! 

All hollow items will be felted around a resist pattern.
This workshop is suitable for beginners and intermediate.
Cost: £18/£15 concession.
A complementary cup of tea and biscuits are included.
Booking in advance is essential, as numbers are limited to 4 participants.
Please feel free to invite friends!

Venue: 63 Crowhill Road, G64 1QY, Glasgow/Bishopbriggs

Last Saturday's afternoon at Toryglen Community Base with Urban Roots

Last Saturday afternoon we celebrated the Harvest with many fantastic activities for all ages. Most of the afternoon the weather was sunny and all activities, like face painting, recycling crafts, needle felting and apple juice making could happen outside at the Toryglen Community Base. There was even a mushroom walk through the Malls Mire wood and a bonfire, baking bread over the fire.  Oh, and a most delicious lunch buffet was set up to every bodies enjoyment! 
The music was provided by bicycle power. Sorry, no photo taken. 
I very much enjoyed getting more folks hooked at needle felting :-) Here you can see a few of the beautiful harvest and Autumn items which have been created!
