Flexibility is the key.

I am very flexible in the way I teach as I understand that many friends and family members come together and don’t want to make the same felt item.
So I have decided to put together a pick and choose set of techniques for you to choose from below  – The only rule I have is that I keep the wet felting and needle felting classes separate.
Full Day- 10am  -3.45pm –  All materials unless otherwise stated plus refreshments
  Seamless bags, slippers or ipad covers
 Wet felted pictures, footstool and upholstery
Nuno Felted Scarves or Warm Woolly Scarves
25th March – Venue Stafford Hobby Craft
A felt bag, picture, tea cosy or slippers.
You will learn how to complete a 3 dimensional shape using a relief. The coolest thing is that there will be no sewing at all. Your bag or slippers will be hand washable and very durable…remember felt has survived longer than us!

Footstool and upholster it in a day

You will mix your colours to create landscapes, or any scene you would like to bring along. You really do not have to be artistic – just relax and enjoy the process!
 There will also be the opportunity to incorporated some scrummy bits and bobs, recycled and silky shimmers if you like texture. You may like to use your piece as a wall-hanging, cushion panel or  footstool. You just need to bring a picture or a brief idea along or I have images images, books or examples that you may like to work from.
  On booking, you must give 1 week notice of the shape of your foot stool -Size 10” square. Additional cost for the foot stool materials (wood, foam,4 feet) only £15 payable on the day or bring your own stool to the same dimensions.

Nuno Felted Scarves or Warm Woolly Scarves

What is Nuno? Well let me explain a little about it – By melding a loose fibre i.e.usually wool, into a sheer fabric such as a silk gauze or a very fine cloth , when felted the wool shrinks to leave a beautiful subtle texture on the silk that is created by no other technique, creating texture and drape which lends itself to beautiful movement required in a scarf.
Or you may like to make a lovely woolly scarf , the choice is completely yours!
I have a variety of scarves available to purchase from £7 -£12 but please feel free to bring your own FINE scarf -silk or even a polyester (very fine) will work too but you will get a less crinkly effect with polyester and cotton .
Half Day pictures only – Come along and see what felting is all about. 10am -12.30pm
Please enquire if you do not see a date that suits you.
