Dear new Year 2!!
You will be starting your tailoring tech classes in the new term. YOU WILL NEED TO BUY 2m of wool for this. You should have this for your first day back.
The wool should have a high natural content and something that is mouldable. Do not buy anything too thin as if this is your first time learning these skills, it will be hard. Something of the thickness of a Harris Tweed.
You don’t have to spend a lot on this, anything cheap(ish) but make sure it has a grain ie. not a felt!
Again, KEEP WATCHING FOR UPDATES! looking forward to seeing your research in the coming weeks!
