What to expect...
Learn about processing raw wool and how to weave a seat pad on a peg loom, using wool from sheep you will meet in a relaxed outdoor setting. On arrival we'll have a cuppa and introduce the farm, then go and meet the sheep - get a scratch or a cuddle if they're up for it! Wandering through the pasture, we'll discuss the farming system, their characteristics and behaviour, fleeces and wool then go and have a look at some fleeces and choose one to weave. We'll break for lunch (please bring a pack up) After lunch we'll learn how to set up a peg loom, look at how to weave the fleeces then get cracking! Weaving a seat pad or a small rug, help will be at hand, and you can carry on until you're finished! While we weave you can absorb the beautiful surroundings and views (hopefully!) while enjoying a blether about whatever takes our fancy! We'll to weave outside so prepare for the weather (emergency inside space available if really needed!).
