Get as hands on as you would like! You will get a group demonstration from Paul who is a very experienced shearer and then a one-to-one walk through with as much help as you would like. Homemade farmhouse lunch is provided then you will have the opportunity to create a truly hand crafted felt item using a range of felting techniques.

Fleece to Felt - 11th July 2020
Lunch and refreshments are provided. Only 16's and over may actually shear a sheep (younger children will be offered other helping roles). Times may vary depending upon weather. Please bring wellies and clothes that can get dirty or overalls. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Please note we have very friendly dogs. Your own dogs are sadly not welcome for this experience due to possible stress levels for the sheep. The experience is conducted with a small group so early booking is advisable.
