Flexibility is good right! FULL DAY COURSES

I am very flexible in the way I teach as I understand that many friends and family members come together and don’t always want to make the same felt item.
So I now teach a variety of techniques on the same day for you to choose from, the only rule I have is that I keep the wet felting and needle felting classes separate and you are patient for 10 minutes whilst I demonstrate alternative techniques, but you learn from this too.
Full Day- 10am  -3.45pm -Included:All materials unless otherwise stated plus refreshments
  Options: Seamless bags or slippers, pictures, footstools, scarf
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!
 

Picture/Wall Art or make a 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 have the opportunity to incorporated scrummy bits and bobs and silky shimmers. 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? 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.
Please enquire if you do not see a date that suits you.
