Felt making workshop at Penicuik House in action
Thanks to the generosity of Scottish Lime Centre and the preparedness of members of the Galgael Trust (from Glasgow), the training room in Penicuik House saw today a hive of creative activity. A wealth of resources was available for the 8 participants from the Lothians, and later for the two kids of one of them, a local teacher, to make different felt projects, from tapestries to flower broches, from multicoloured beads to chubby hamsters, from small bags to big bags. Beginners and advanced students of felt making mixed and mingled, helping and inspiring each other, and going home enthusiastic, rich and well fed.
More pictures and accounts to come.
