Feltmaking – Create a 3D Vessel.    There are many ways of creatively using felt, either artistically or practically. Felt can be use to create the finest gauze-like material or so strong it can be made into three-dimensional objects, either solid or hollow !

Rag Rug Making – one day course.   Rag Rug making was very much a working class tradition in Britain. Rag Rugs were made out of necessity and were rough strips of fabric generally cut out of clothes which were no longer in a condition to be used as anything other than rags.
