After long thought and discussion I have decided that we will install the new lines and ‘sausages’ at the beginning of May ( not April as I had originally thought). Several reasons for change of plan, lambing will nearly be over, it might be warmer ( hopefully) and it provides more time to sort out the logistics of taking more wool up and working with horses. I already lose sleep wondering how we will get all the wool up onto the mountain, take a look at the size of one of the 16 bales of felt below…………..
So the current plan is to carry wool up with horses and helpers on Tuesday 10th and Wenesday 11th May and then have an extra day on Saturday 14th May putting everything in place.
Volunteers are need on all the days, and those willing and able to lead horses are especially welcome on the Tuesday and Wednesday as I need 8 people to lead horses carrying the packs. Please let me know if you can help.
I am also goingto need help packing the wondeful ‘saddle’ bags that I have created prior to this. This will involve cutting the felts to length and packing them carefully , again please get in touch if you are interested.
I am running sessions to make wool sausages, at my studio on April 7th , 8th, 14th from 2.30-4.30 and at Arts Alive on 20th April 10.30-12.30. Please get in touch if you would like to come along. There may be other dates later in April too.
