Nightingales visited the Shipley Art Gallery to learn how to make felt. It was fascinating. We  found out about all different types of textiles and looked at an enormous quilt, it was beautiful. Then we started to make our own piece of felt using very thin strands of coloured wool, soapy water, a piece of muslin cloth and our fingers to rub the strands of wool together. We had to leave it at the gallery overnight because when we left our pieces of felt were all soaking wet. It was really good fun
