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.

For Beginners

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.

Getting Creative

Moving on, we have fun making Seamless purses, Flying Seagulls, Sleeping Foxes, Seascapes and 3D Landscapes. See here for details, dates & available places.

Wet Felting

At the moment we are doing Shibori, which is sort of a tie-dye wet felting process. This is experimental stuff which is great fun. We make beautiful purses, (and a bit of a mess – well that’s the ‘wet’ bit) See here for details, dates & available places.

Christmas & Specials

I haven’t settled the Christmas workshops yet. Angels are always popular, and Scandinavian trolls called Tomtes (who traditionally must be fed Julegrot or Christmas porridge.) And there will be something new. There always is, that’s the fun.

The Workshops

Held in my home in St Leonards on Sea (workshop details here), some workshops are half day, and others are whole day. They are limited in number 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. Whole day workshops include a home cooked lunch, and half day ones include home baked cake. Yippee! Coffee, tea and biscuits are all included.

Commissions & 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.

The Newsletter

I do a regular newsletter, mostly with any changes to availability, and last minute drop outs, (so there is a place to be filled), but also with snippets of news from the fruitful firmament of felt. Slightly better than Vogue and Homes & Gardens combined…Sign up here
