Felted 'Sheepskin Style' Rug Making Workshop
17th June 2018 10am - 4pm

Come and spend an energetic day creating your own sumptuous British wool fleece rug. The rug will have the look and feel of sheepskin, with the benefit of the sheep living happily to grow another fleece for next year!

You will be guided through all the steps required to create your own full size fleece rug and there will be a variety of breeds / colours to choose from.

This is a very physical activity. Lots of arm and upper body work is required as we hand felt the rug to give it structure. You will be working outside and may get wet so please dress accordingly.



A delicious homemade lunch is included and hot and cold drinks will be available throughout the day.

If you have your own fleece, you are more than welcome to bring that to work on.

The rug workshop is held on my smallholding on the border of Bury and Bolton. Directions will be sent upon booking.
Please ask if you require a list of local accommodation.

Rainy Williamson is a qualified teacher with over 25 years experience.
