Are you a smallholder who keeps sheep and has a pile of fleeces in the shed? Do you wonder if there’s a creative way you could use the wool other than as a mulch for the veggies?
Do you ponder about ways to transform all those fleeces into something you could sell that could help pay for those sheep nuts and mineral lick buckets that your woolly friends enjoy so much?
Perhaps you don’t keep sheep but simply want to learn an ancient and grounding craft that connects you with the natural world? Something earthy and meditative that takes time and creativity and will give you something unique and beautiful to use in your own home?
Do you simply enjoy creating, crafting and getting messy?
Then learning how to make felted fleece rugs could be just the thing 😊
If you can get hold of a raw fleece, have a large table on which to work, lots of old bath towels and access to plenty of hot water, then you’re already half-way there! (Full shopping list included in the course).
The method I’ll be showing you is the same way I make the rugs we sell in our shop. This is the “face up” method where you will be working from the top and placing the locks little by little.
You will also learn how to make a flexible frame so that you can make a rug of different shapes.
The course comprises:
- A written booklet divided into sections showing you the process step by step.
- Photos at every step of the way.
- Short videos demonstrating how to do things along the way.
If you purchase the course, you’ll be able to email me any questions if you get stuck.
And of course, if you purchase the course and decide it’s not for you then it is fully refundable.
