We look forward to welcoming lots of you to our workshop room at our Patcham Methodist Fair on Saturday 1st April. Here are some details of what you can expect on the day:
Decorate An Easter Bonnet or Basket
Choose a bonnet or cowboy hat and top with bunny and chick pom poms, feathers, glittery eggs and felt stickers – you can even add your name. You could also pick a bright basket and stick on a selection of self-adhesive Easter shapes. Drop in and make yours at the fair, or take away a pack to make at home. Multi-buy deals available. Fun, fast and mess-free!

The Wet Felting Experience
Create your very own work of art using just wool, soap, water! Today with the addition of pipe cleaners, we’ll be bringing to life, felted butterflies, moths and flowers!
Karen will be guiding you through the ancient wet felting process of laying down soft Merino Wool, then with a little rubbing and rolling and a dash of elbow grease, your pile of wool will transform into a hand felted picture. Not only do you take your piece of art home, but you take with you a new skill too!
Drop in workshop. Suitable for all ages £5
