The Ffeisty Ffelters are an established group of feltmakers based in Shropshire and the borders. They have a contemporary approach, come from a variety of backgrounds in art and textiles and meet to share and exchange skills. Their work ranges from the fine and intricate to the bold and chunky, with lots of colour. Members of the group have developed a wide range of felt-making skills encompassing 3-dimensional and garment-making to 2-dimensional abstract and representational work. They exhibit to showcase and sell work in the Shropshire, Herefordshire and Mid-Wales.

We will be running four events this year; with each one focusing on a different hangar and theme. We will also be adding two daytime events, in May and September! Details of which hangar and aircraft the event will take place in will be announced in the new year.

Attending the exclusive Open Cockpits and Cabs events is an opportunity to raise vital funds for the RAF100 Appeal, which is a joint venture between the Royal Air Force and the four major RAF charities – the Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund, the Royal Air Forces Association, the Royal Air Force Charitable Trust and the Royal Air Force Museum. The aim of the Appeal is to raise money for the RAF family and to create a lasting legacy as we celebrate 100 years of the Royal Air Force.
