Guests will be introduced to a wide colour palette of ethically sourced merino wool reflecting the rich colours of the Scottish Highlands. We will then tease apart and layer the wool to form a landscape scene before adding sparkling strands, and other felted fibres to represent sheep, trees and crofts. We will then sprinkle warm soapy water onto our artwork before rubbing it between 2 layers of bubblewrap. It's a bit like shinking a jumper in the wash! Our fibres will eventually bond, forming a firm piece of fabric. The artwork is rinsed and excess water squeezed out. Once dry, your unique felted landscape will be ready for you to take home and frame.
I am a textile artist who has lived in the Scottish Highlands since 1997. I love to "paint" using wool & silk fibres, inspired by the surrounding countryside. I have been sharing my skills at workshops for over 6 years and regularly sell my work at events such as farmer's markets, Highland games and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. I also appeared on television demonstrating Feltmaking. I recently built a workshop in my garden at my home in Inverness & look forward to showing guests how to make their own souvenir of the Highlands in my quirky cabin.

All equipment will be provided by me.

The cabin is accessed via a series of steps and gentle slopes which may be challenging for guests with limited ability. The cabin has quite a low roof so please mind your head if you're over 5' 8"
