Felt up


Super friends Chris and Liz came to stay and run a felt making workshop in the kitchen throughout the whole of Saturday.


Felt making is as old as time: The story of Saint Clement and Saint Christopher relates that while fleeing from persecution, the men packed their sandals with wool to prevent blisters. At the end of their journey, the movement and sweat had turned the wool into felt socks.




Hard work. Results great. I made a bag for carrying camera, two Moleskines, phone and wallet. (detail photo) If you want more background on the wonderful world of felt click here
