Make a Felted Landscape in Inverness

Inverness, United Kingdom

Check local COVID-19 restrictions before booking

Experience hosted by Sue

2 hours
Includes food, drinks, equipment
Up to 3 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

Guests will be introduced to a wide colour palette of ethically sourced merino wool reflecting the rich colours of the Scottish Highlands. We will then tease apart and layer the wool to form a landscape scene before adding sparkling strands, and other felted fibres to represent sheep, trees and crofts.
We will then sprinkle warm soapy water onto our artwork before rubbing it between 2 layers of bubblewrap. It's a bit like shinking a jumper in the wash!
Our fibres will eventually bond, forming a firm piece of fabric. The artwork is rinsed and excess water squeezed out. Once dry, your unique felted landscape will be ready for you to take home and frame.
Other things to note
The cabin is accessed via a series of steps and gentle slopes which may be challenging for guests with limited ability. The cabin has quite a low roof so please mind your head if you're over 5' 8"

I am a textile artist who has lived in the Scottish Highlands since 1997. I love to "paint" using wool & silk fibres, inspired by the surrounding countryside.

I have been sharing my skills at workshops for over 6 years and regularly sell my work at events such as farmer's markets, Highland games and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. I also appeared on television demonstrating Feltmaking.

I recently built a workshop in my garden at my home in Inverness & look forward to showing guests how to make their own souvenir of the Highlands in my quirky cabin.

Sue is wonderfully gifted in her craft, and shares it so generously with her guests. She is hospitable and welcoming. I couldn’t think of a better way to have spent my last afternoon in Scotland - a relaxing time, learning a new craft, and walking away with a handmade souvenir!

Had a really excellent, relaxed morning in Sue's fabulous wood-fired cabin in her garden, which is so cosy and a perfect creative space. Learned lots, experimented with different techniques, had tea and biscuits, and lots of fun! Would highly recommend as a really nice and unusual activity to do in the Highlands.
