Needle Felting & Wet Felting Workshops, Delights and Ideas.
I teach needle felting and wet felting in small, popular workshops.
What are Needle Felting and Wet Felting?
They are ways of binding wool together to make decorative and useful things. They are traditional craftskills with no chemicals, no nasty bits …but wool is made from animals!
There is more here on the About page.
I always like to get people to start with the Essential Needle Felting workshop, as it really enables you to get felting, but in a way that works for you. See here for details, dates & available places.
Moving on, we will have fun needle felting Scottie dogs brooches and Salamanders, embellishing Berets and Easter eggs.
Dates will be coming soon I promise!
We will be experimenting with wet felting “Cracked Mud” and also wet felting Soap, Spring Flowers and Poppies for November. However we are starting off with Wet Felting Soap in February.
More dates will follow soon.
Christmas & Specials
For Christmas (yes, Christmas 2019) I am thinking about needle felting Mice on Skiis, a Robin Brooch and Elf/Santa Brooch and wet felted Christmas soaps. But this will not be until October time!
Held in my home in St Leonards on Sea (workshop details here), the workshops are all half day. But you never know a full day may creep in.
They are limited in number (maximum of 5) as I’ve found it’s more fun and better learning that way, and come with most things supplied. Some of the special workshops need special tools. They aren’t expensive but I’ll advise you in advance and have them in stock.
The half day workshop include home baked cake. Yippee! and you have the pleasure in meeting Megan, my ace number Bouvier des Flandres (posh way of saying – dog).
Coffee, tea and biscuits are all included and you will definitely meet some lovely people too.
Commissions and In the Shop
If you have something you’d like made for you please give me a call and we can have a chat about it. (01424 421412). To get an idea of what I do and have done please see examples on the Commissions page and also The Gallery.
I also exhibit and sell from Rye’s Handmade, a lovely shop in Rye. My stock there is ever changing as it gets bought up by avid felt lovers, but if you are in Rye please drop in as you won’t be disappointed.
I email a regular newsletter, mostly with any changes to availability (last minute drop outs are the hardest to fill), but also with snippets of news from the fruitful firmament of felt. Slightly better than Vogue and Homes & Gardens combined…Sign up here
