Craft as well as prayer, often thrives with careful, focused attention.
Working with felt, in particular, allows for working with rich colours and textures, binding together loose threads to make a whole.
On the Friday evening we’ll learn a flat felt technique which can be applied to book covers or hangings. On Saturday we will try 3D felting which could be used to make a bag, slippers or a hat. On Sunday will be needle felting which can be used to create a 3D sculpture or to embellish a picture. There will be time for quiet concentration as you learn or develop this craft, prayer in the monastic rhythm and happy chats around the table.
Full instructions and materials are provided. Suitable for complete beginners.
