Free Leaflet for our Summer Weekend Away 5-7 June 2020 - Go Wild with The Makerss

The Makerss


Join us for a Wild Treat 5th - 7th June 2020 - A wild weekend of working with wool.

Spend time in the hidden wilderness of the Forest of Dean, where wild boars roam and the world feels at peace. Get away from the stresses of daily life and chill with us whilst enjoying good food, great company and lots of lush and magical fibres and wool (great for hugging too!).

Suitable for beginners upwards.

Meet the sheep, wash raw fleece, wet felting, needle felting, indigo dyeing, talks and walks about plants and dyeing. Learn about wool and its wonderful properties, meditate and meet around the campfire. 

 The event will take place at The Wilderness Centre, a beauty spot on the edge of the Forest of Dean in Gloucestershire overlooking The River Severn.

 Your days will be filled with dry and wet felting, wool processing and nature walks and talks all while you spend time with like minded and lovely people. Lots of time to make new friends, have fun and eat well in the true Makerss style! We would like to take you on a journey of well-being, connecting with nature and spending relaxing times together with friends whilst learning new techniques and skills in felt making, 2d and 3D.

All materials and tools provided, ending with beautiful felted projects to take home.
