Making felt whist the sun shines!

In preparation for Toft's Felt Jewellery and Shearing Workshop on the 17th May, Carrie and Emi have been making some felt jewellery and enjoying the sunshine here at Toft. They've been coming up with some new designs and ideas as well as documenting it all for the new workshop notes.  Today Emi is busy mixing colours and dying fleeces like some kind of mad professor of colour!  So far we've got a rich gold, an orange, lilac and a beautiful green (Carrie's favourite so far). 

If you would like to join us on the Felt Jewellery and Shearing Workshop there are still some places left.  We're hoping for a lovely dry day so that we can get lots of animals sheared and show you how we literally get alpaca from field to fashion!  The workshop date is Tuesday 17th May and for a mere £45 we include tuition, materials, a tour of the farm and shearing demonstrations, not to mention refreshments and a home cooked lunch!  To book just follow this link http://www.thetoftalpacashop.co.uk/ProductDetails.aspx?AltProdID=shearing
