The Essential Needle Felting Workshop
The Best Beginners Felting Workshop
My workshops start at the beginning. Which is Essential, really. I have so many lovely people come for help after not understanding some YouTube guides, or who have failed with a felting kit.
You are not alone.
And all it takes is the Essential half day workshop to set you on the right track, needle felting as you want to, making the things you want to.
I give you a bit of background which you listen to politely, usually, and then we make a red felt heart. A heart because it is a good starting size, you will learn how to shape, and it is thick enough to learn an effective needle technique without drawing blood!
In the last hour or so we start getting creative and decorate the hearts …with all sorts, beads, embroidery, little buzzy Bees, anything you want. This is fun.
So, if you feel you want to do it properly, but also have fun, be creative and eat cake, please sign up for an Essential Beginners course.

One day | Needle felting | *Some previous Needle Felting experience necessary* | £60 | Where, Map & Times
During this one day workshop you will be needle felting a small seascape, measuring approximately 13cm x 17cm. It is a dry felt making technique using a special multi needle felting tool and felting brush.
Your picture will consist of sky and sea, cliffs and beach. Onto this I will show you how to add clouds, boats, lighthouse, jetty, village, fish, and whatever else we can think of, to personalise it and make this seascape your own. You can then either mount your picture into a window mount (supplied) or needle felt it onto a grey felt bag.
NB You will need a multi needle felting tool and large felting brush. You can either bring your own or you can purchase them from me for an extra charge of £18 for the pair. The Grey Felt Bags are an extra £7.50 each
