When your work is dry you will then use needle felting techniques, embellishment and embroidery to add detail. Throughout the day you will be given advice and encouraged to use your own creativity to produce a piece of artwork which is unique and something to be proud of. A full buffet lunch and refreshments throughout the day are included.

I am passionate about felting and enjoy experimenting with new ideas and techniques. Wool is an incredibly versatile material which makes it perfect for 3D felting. I particularly enjoy creating landscapes and incorporate mixed fibres to add texture and interest. I am also interested in Shibori techniques and run courses in the community. I live in Teesdale, Co. Durham and much of my artwork is inspired by its beautiful landscape.
