Felting has become very popular in recent years and it is a skill that people can learn without too much initial outlay. The felting group meet on the first and third Wednesdays of the month from 10.30am to 3.30pm and during these sessions members can learn wet and needle felting.
Items produced by the felting group are very popular items included at our Craft Sales and Exhibitions during the year. Beginners are welcome as are those with more experience and this is a great way to start of or improve your felting techniques. See programme below.
