Felt scarf class Friday 17th November, 10am-1pm
Hat in the Cat, 2 Main Street, Perth.
£45 (fee includes all materials)
On this half-day workshop, you will make a fine merino scarf, marbled with silk, using the cobweb felt technique. You can choose your own colour combinations, and best of all, this workshop requires no previous felt-making knowledge so is suitable for both new makers and those with more experience. Come along for a morning, learn a new skill and leave with a beautiful wrap to keep for yourself, or to make an ideal Christmas gift for family or friend!
The class will be limited to 4 people, so get in quick and reserve your place today!

2018 masterclass descriptions are now available!
More classes have been added to the 2018 Masterclass programme… James Hunting’s class will encourage you to reconnect with the gestures of stitch.We’re also looking forward to welcoming the inspiring felt artist Charlotte Sehmisch back to Newburgh for a new and exciting class. And there will be a rare opportunity to construct a tailored/boned corset in the latest masterclass to be added.

More classes are in the pipeline… we’ll let you know as soon as they are confirmed. In the mean time, you can find our 2018 programme here which includes a link to the class descriptions. We’re taking bookings now – so reserve your place today!
