Contact course provider
About the Course
Join us for cake, coffee crafting and chat on the Coventry Canal.
In this fun relaxing 2.5 hour workshop we will experiment with a variety of needle felting techniques.
We will work with 5 different types of felting needles (fine, medium, coarse, reverse and twisted) and use a number of different types of roving in order to create your choice of 3D needle felted figure (if we have time we might make a small brooch as well).
Suitable for both beginners and experienced crafters.
You''ll make a stunning creation unique to you while enjoying the relaxing canal environment, they make great gifts (if you can bear to part with them).
If arriving by car the nearest car park is a short walk away on Sutton Stop. If arriving by bus the number 6A stops just a 15 minute walk away. If travelling by train we are a 30 minute walk from Coventry Arena Station (note this is not Coventry City Centre station)
If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above or telephone us. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

Thoroughly enjoyed the Powertex journal workshop. Lisa was a great tutor and the venue was lovely - would definitely do more of Lisa's workshops. I love my journal!
