July Workshop : A little more time to develop design

Often workshops are quick tasters of the process of felt making but this weekend workshop allowed more creative time to scale up ideas. We worked in pastels to get the harmony of the wool blending  when it felts. The number of students was limited to allow a large work area and lots of tutor attention. Our accommodation we are developing at the station allowed our students to stay and the evening conversations we an extra bonus . Dalmally is a delightful venue to get away from all the stresses of our busy lives and immerse yourself in Woolly Wonderness.
