In the past we have taken part in Open Farm Sunday in partnership with the RBST to allow visitors to see the farm and our Rare breeds. Farm tours are available by appointment. The Peg Loom, felted back fleece, slipper making and tapestry weaving courses are held at the farm and also available on-line which means students from around the world can take part.

 

  Courses on the Farm

This course will be held on the farm near Welshpool, outside in the sunshine or undercover in a large barn. Refreshments included though please bring a packed lunch. All materials provided for the day, looms can be borrowed or you are welcome to bring your own. Looms, warp thread, washed fleeces and unwashed fleeces are available to buy.

We have several breeds of sheep which can be seen with their lambs.

Online Courses

On the first session the times are arranged for sessions 2 & 3.
