You will then discover the beauties of the dyes from the plants in our garden. And then you will make a peg loom hanging with the fleece you have dyed. On the last day you will learn to weave on a Brinkley loom, making a sample piece or even a scarf! And you will also be able to make a 3D piece of felt to take home with you.
