Felt an owl at Gibside, National Trust Property
Saturday 1st July 10-4 in the white Georgian cottage at the side of the walled garden. It’s a fab venue – really atmospheric 🙂
After our sell out full day course at Central library for Gateshead Culture Team, people have been asking for another day ‘owling.’ In making your owl, you will learn transferable skills that will enable you to make a whole host of creatures! You will earn to create an armature, play with feathers and make bird claws with wire, felting and fabric stiffener paverpol.
£50 for the day, including all materials and tea/coffee. Book your place via paypal by clicking on the purple basket.
