Wat je gaat doen
After an introduction and drink we will go on a short walk around our base to get some inspiration from Lochaber's beautiful scenery and learn a little more about the history and wildlife of the area. The walk will be to the Old Fort by the shore of the loch On our return to the base participants decide what Scottish view or animal/plant they would like to create and plan their picture or 3D design. Guests will be taught how to use a drop spindle to create their own wool and shown how to weave pieces of cloth that can be added into the needle felted design if they wish or kept as a souvenir After another break for Tea and Coffee participants will be shown how to needle felt their designs and incorporate other materials such as Harris tweed or beads into the design Participants will then work on their own designs with help and guidance in order to create a truly unique Scottish souvenir to take home
I have been a Countryside Ranger in Scotland for more than ten years and have a life long love of the natural world and Scotland's culture, history, ancient skills and folklore and I use this knowledge and passion to create unique pieces of art using traditional skills such as drop spinning, weaving, needle felting, whittling, pyrography and leather work. I was one of the first three Rangers to be awarded the Scottish Countryside Ranger Award and have a MSc in Wildlife Biology and Conservation along with many other qualifications and although not fluent I am a Scottish Gaelic speaker.
