Inspirational course covering wet felting and Nuno techniques in the beautiful Forest of Dean
Experimental felt-making day-course covering basic flat felt and Nuno techniques: Design your own pattern or picture from an image or source of your own choice for either a wall hanging, cushion, scarf, or piece of fabric to be later made into something such as a bag or book cover. How to translate your image into felt, select colours, and use pre-felts and layering to form pockets and flaps. At the end of the day you will come away with a finished piece of felt to be made into an item of your choice, and the confidence to carry on and make lots more. We can also cover Nuno felting techniques to create beautiful fabrics suitable for scarves and garments. Note: If you are not able to make any of the dates on view, a date can be arranged to suit - please get in touch via 'Message the tutor.' The course is run in my purpose-built studio at my home situated on a hillside in the beautiful Forest of Dean. The access is quite steep, and not suitable for wheelchairs unfortunately.

I have an established background in designing and making textiles, working primarily with wool. With a passion for colour, I work with machine knitted and felted wearables and soft furnishings, which I applique, embellish or stitch. I have become fascinated by hand felting for the freedom of colour mixing, mark making and sculptural possibilities it offers, which I find very exciting .
