A sharing textile event in a unique setting.
Heartfelt Studio at Dalmally Railway Station in Argyll
Why a big event? Heartfelt Studio holds a monthly gathering of textile friends , we weave we spin but as it was a reprieve day for me , we did no felt making!
To share the joy that felt making has given me for 21 years with all my textile friends …we have decided to have a whole weekend of felt fun here at the Railway Station.
We have gone for early September to try and miss the midges – Apart from the Studio and the covered platform area we now have a large polytunnel growing many dye plants and will put up a marque for extra space.
We will have The Scottish Storytelling Yurt up along with several other yurts so if you have never seem Scotland’s alternative Millennium Dome then now is your chance.
This is a celebration of textile friendships old and new .
Total inclusion for all Felt makers and textile lovers from anywhere in the world .
This is a not for profit event , you are welcome to bring things to show and tell and we are happy for you to barter and trade amongst yourselves but it is not a trade orientated event .
We do have an Airbnb facility with a limited number of spaces and have space on grass to camp or a few spaces for camper vans ( these would need to be prebooked )
If you like more comfort there are several local places that offer a range of accommodation.
We will structure the day with suggested demos from those who would like to share their passion or just show and tell. Beginners and skilled artists are all valued .
An evening cook in is suggested for those who can manage to stay .
Come for an hour or a weekend – whatever suits you .
We are on a main railway line- Glasgow to Oban or by bus . If you have a car just 1 1/2 hours drive from Glasgow .
Experience the Highlands – share the love of Feltmaking.
Join us on the 7th and 8th of September.
