In this one-day course you will have the opportunity to work alongside Yorkshire textile-artist, Mister Finch.
The day will begin with an introduction from Mister Finch about his inspiration and working practice. You will use creative methods to create your very own jointed rabbit doll from felt to take home. The workshop will also provide you with the skills to create your own pattern to create your own fantastical creature.
Depending on your skill level you may not finish the course with a completed rabbit but will have the skills and experience to finish it off at home.
The workshop includes tea, coffee and lunch from the Museum café.
