Felting Workshops, Felt 'Objets' and commissions.
The 3 Essential Workshops in February really got me enthused, and were so enjoyable. Teaching and inspiring people how to get started with Needle Felting is absolutely wonderful. And when the new recruits then enroll into another workshop – whoa, what a result! I am currently working on some new ideas and will soon be introducing a round the world theme, starting with a Needle Felted Panda, then a Koala Bear and I would also love to do a crocodile too at some point.
I have been busy needle felting, and working on a new range of Owls for Rye’s Handmade. Needle felting these little owls has been great fun, although I must admit I have never seen a Purple one. The workshops for February and March have been filling up so fast. Thank you to everyone who has booked into them already. I will be shortly be adding more for the following 3 months, so please check back in soon.
I have tried to be organised for 2019 and needle felt everything needed for my new felting workshops this year. Have I been successful? No, but I have been thinking about a new Embellish your Beret Workshop. What do you think? The Felting for Beginners Workshops will start in February with 2 or 3 to get the year going. It will be great to meet some new people who I hope will become felting enthusiasts like me.
Get Felting for Beginners Starting with the Essential Needle Felting for Beginners, this workshop will set you up for all of my others. These Hearts are examples of one of my workshops held in 2018. I was very proud of the work, and even prouder when they returned for further felting workshops. The Essential Needle Felting for Beginners workshops will be held monthly.
Well … haven’t visited here for ages. So, starting as I mean to go on, some interesting News from the land of felting, or from Silverhill which sounds like something from a fairy tale. No Workshops this month, they start in February with 2 Essential Needle Felting Workshops and 2 Wet Felting Soap Workshops. Why not sign up for my monthly Newsletter and I will send you up-dated information on a regular basis?
Needle felting is AMAZING. The number of things you can create by stabbing a special felting needle into a handful of wool is unbelievable and once you get started you will never want to stop. For a number of years now I have been teaching small groups of people this wonderful skill. Many cannot believe how much they achieve during a half day workshop. This makes me carry on. As well as inspiring people, they inspire me and I love coming up with unusual things for them to needle felt. We also wet felt small items. Many would love to wet felt scarves, but more space and more tables are needed, which I don’t have. If you would like to me inspired and learn how to create woolly things, please check out the Workshop pages and contact me to join one – soon.
