A creative weekend retreat offering time and space for rest and reflection alongside the rhythm of the Community with an opportunity to join them in daily prayer. We will explore the exciting processes involved in 3-dimensional wet-felting.
The weekend is suitable for beginners and more experienced wet-felters. Teaching and support will be given throughout, but you will also be able to work at your own pace, with your own design ideas.
All materials are provided: including merino wools, silk and mixed fibres and a variety of threads. During the retreat you will be able to make felted beads for on-trend bracelets and necklaces and your own unique and practical ‘grab-bag’.
All you will need to bring with you are two large towels, one small towel and a pair of scissors.
