Felting is an ancient art form and can be used to create stunning decorations, novelty items and garments. Layers of wool fibres are worked together using warm water, soap and a little bit of elbow grease. As the wool fibres shrink they twist and fuse together forming a beautiful natural material.
Carol Coyne is an experienced tutor with a passion for all things crafty, and just can’t resist trying out new techniques and materials.
All of our workshops have been developed to provide a quiet day of creativity and gentle tuition and this fun session is specifically tailored for people who have no prior knowledge or experience of felting, or those who want to improve their technique.
During the workshop there will be demonstrations showing you how to take wool fibres and felt them together. You will learn how to make flat and 3D items such as beads, flowers and fabric.
You don’t need to bring anything with you as you will be supplied with all the tools and materials needed to create several felt items. Simply bring yourself, a smile and a sense of humour ready for a fun session. (If you have any allergies or skin sensitivity please bring your own soap on the day).
By the end of the class you will take home all the items you produce in the workshop. Your creations will need to be dried at home so you will be provided with a plastic bag to take them home in.
Your goodies can be turned into necklaces, bracelets, brooches, bookmarks or embellishments for other crafts.
The course focus is always on fun and friendly creativity with lots of personal tuition from an experienced wet felting artist.
FOOD: Hot and cold refreshments will be provided throughout the day but alternatively the shop is situated next to the wonderful Mulberry Tree Cafe where you can purchase delicious food and drinks at reasonable prices.
The course costs £25.00 to include materials, use of tools etc and refreshments throughout the day.
