Make Kyrgyz stitched felt on this special feltmaking weekend. Choose from a range of traditional designs, then make felt and spin cordage, and cut and stitch your sample pieces together.
Kirsten travelled to Kyrgyzstan to learn traditional techniques from the local people. On Saturday evening Kirsten will show slides from her Kyrgyz travels, providing a first hand view of the lives of the villagers who make and use these beautiful rugs. We will make sure there is an opportunity to get a takeaway (possibly accompanied by wine or beer!)
Book your place on this weekend of feltmaking, spinning, cutting,stitching, history and tradition, in the company of fellow textile enthusiasts.
