DATES FOR YOUR 2017 DIARY

A really wonderful programme has been arranged for this year based on the responses from last years forms. 

As you can see we have Gabi McGrath returning, this time to create a beautiful leather & felt handbag. Gabi is a really great tutor, patient & encouraging. 

Then we have "the doyenne" of all things felted, the delightful Dorothy Dinsmore. Dorothy will be needle-felting a hare & if her contributions to our exhibition are anything to go by this is a must do workshop. Very excited :-) 

By popular demand we have the 'Improving skills' workshop - a super day aimed at both experienced & new feltees. There is always some skill or technique we can learn or improve upon. A number of experienced filters shall be taking this workshop & thus there will be greater opportunity for more individual tuition.

Gabriella Kovacs has a wealth of experience & the subject of this workshop is yet to be confirmed. As is the Wendy Bailye workshop. Keep checking the blog for further updates.
