Would you like to spend time making felt in a friendly supportive environment? This is not a workshop, just a relaxed, fun time where you can explore felting techniques, working on a project of your own choice alongside other felt makers and sharing ideas. Bring your own wool and felting equipment.
Rapt in felt: Our stories was opened by Harriet Elvin, Chief Executive Officer of the Cultural Facilities Corporation, which runs a number of the ACT’s major cultural venues, including the Canberra Theatre Centre, the Canberra Museum and Gallery, and three historic house museums – Lanyon, Calthorpes’ House and Mugga-Mugga.
