Choose from a variety of experiences during your stay at the Romney Marsh Shepherd's Huts...
In the cosy and calm environment of your Shepherds Hut, reclaim the benefits of reconnecting with nature as you gain an introduction to natural dyeing and learn about the myriad of colours that can be obtained from plants. Then using pre-dyed wool from the Romney sheep on the farm, you will be guided through the craft of needle felting to create your very own beautiful felted decorations and creations to take home.
A truly immersive experience in traditional handcrafting that is both therapeutic and rewarding, leave with a new skill and all the tools and inspiration to carry on at home.
Workshops are available to book throughout the year, with different options to suit every season!
All levels warmly welcomed though felting needles are extremely sharp so this experience is not suitable for children under 10.
