Felt making is an ancient process for making textiles that involves a lot of soap bubbles, super-soft wool fibres and a bit of a physical workout! Inspired by Material Power: Palestinian Embroidery, we’ll be making a felt artwork about something precious that we’d like to protect. Felt making is a lot of fun and you won’t even have to thread a needle! For ages 7–11.
