Toft Alpaca Shop are feeling felt-tastic!

It's been a couple of days since our last post which is quite unlike us, but it's because we've been busy felting everything in sight after our training with Jamie Lewis (JLewiscrafts.co.uk).  Kerry & Carrie finished their felt mice in unique ways and I think you'll agree they look rather life like (!) in this line-up.

The felt demo box is out from the depths of the fleece store ready for this Friday's Introduction to Felt workshop at Toft Alpacas.  This box contains a few horrors including a biological detergent washed bulb bag and plait hat, a shrunken jumper that doesn't even fit the Adventure Dog, and some fleece in various stages of carding/spinning process. 

The Toft Felt Workshop day will consist of a lovely farm walk in the sunshine that we've ordered, then some 'expert' felt making tuition using various techniques including wet felting and needle felting.  Carrie is looking forward to practising her new found love of wet felting again after last Friday and sharing the satisfaction of creating your first pieces of wet felt artistry! 

There are still a couple of places left if you want to book but be quick, last orders is tomorrow (Thursday 3rd) before Shirley goes shopping for the wonderful lunches that the workshops are also becoming known for!
