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.

Michelle provided a unique glimpse into a local craft in a beautiful setting. She catered the instruction to our level of expertise and provided examples along the way of her personal work. Although we weren't able to spend much time with Michelle, she was warm and welcoming and created a wonderful experience! She also went out of her way to help us with travel plans which was greatly appreciated.

I had done some needle felting before but Michelle give me extra tips and showed me other aspects of needle felting that I hadnt done before ,3D needlefelting. Michelle is very passionate about every thing she does and keen to share her knowledge. If anybody is in Fort William and needs help or a friendly face head to the library.

The felting class I took with Michelle was excellent! Not only did I learn to felt and make a picture of my own choosing, but she is a great story teller about the Scottish culture and legends. All four of us had a good time. We even learned about wearing Plaid.

Great intro to needle-felting. Got this for myself and my mother and we both really enjoyed it. A great intro to the craft and left with a great unique souvenir of our holiday. Michelle made us feel really comfortable and taught us the basics and encouraged us to be creative. I would thoroughly recommend this experience!

As a solo traveller and keen patchworker, sewer and quilter, and into any sort of craft I was having serious creating withdrawal symptoms. Meeting Michelle and the others in the group was inspirational. Michelle’s local knowledge and the history of the area cannot be equalled. Who knew the kilt was invented by a Frenchman and the traditional garment was a ‘Plaid’. Michelle demonstrated the intricacies of a plaid, something you would never even thought of let alone known. Great local experience everyone should try!!!

I attended Michelle's Traditional Highlands Craft this afternoon and thoroughly enjoyed myself! I think I will try to continue it when I return home. I HIGHLY recommend doing it if you like crafts or a touch of Highlands tradition!
