Kids Feltmaking at Down Arts Centre

About the event

Come and enjoy a creative crafty morning at the Down Arts Centre with tutor Naomi Whan. Naomi will introduce your child to the craft of felt making.

Soap, water and friction are added to wool fibres and it felts into a unique fabric with endless possibilities. At the end of the workshop each child will leave with a beautiful felted picture which you can frame for your home.
