Felting Workshop with Fiona Whyte 

The talented artist and crafter Fiona Whyte from These Hands Made It has prepared an intensive and creative felt making course at our Lugar da Pedra Alta from May 7th to May 14th

Are you interested in making your own fabric? Of the colour and weight YOU want? In a design that you want? A fabric that can be 2 dimensional covering or shaped and coaxed and trained to be a 3 dimensional piece without the use of a sewing machine or a pattern or glue or complicated rules? Then this beginner to intermediate felt making course is what you are looking for!

"I began felting 8 years ago after writing an article about the faded textile industry in Portugal: I visited a disused wool factory and met some inspiring felt and fibre artists.

Some of them were keeping the skills alive and others were challenging the possibilities of a humble fibre. Have I piqued your interest?

I was astonished to discover that I could make my own fabric from wool and silk. It felt like a little miracle. Every time I go to my studio I still sense that miracle." Fiona Whyte

The week will be filled with a lot of knowledge, hands on felting making, a visit to CERVAS - Centro de Ecologia, Recuperação e Vigilância de Animais Selvagens and a wool factory, good food and wonderful company!

For reservations and more information please contact Fiona at

Bem Haja!
