Saturday 16th September – Dame Hilary and Helpers: Easy felting

Learn how to do felting the easy way.

Felt is ideal for bags, cosy slippers, table mats

Knit a tension square. Felt it by sticking it in the washing machine at 40 or 60 degrees and see how much it shrinks. It’s a great way to use up loads of yarn! (although not all of it felts)

On this course you’ll learn how to choose suitable yarn, work out patterns and have loads of fun.

Bring 10mm needles if you can find them (don’t worry we have some in stock). Techniques to make slippers, matts or bags.
