So much better than the real thing this sprig of 100% wool felt mistletoe will last forever! Hand made in London each sprig has 11 sets of leaves and berries and a wire hanger. They come tied with a piece of red ribbon. Extremely easy to care for, keep out of direct sunlight and simply dust lightly with a paintbrush or use a hairdryer on a cool, gentle setting at arm's length.

How this was made

Made using 100% wool felt, hand-dyed wool and wire. The making process uses binding techniques and stitches.

What's included in the price?

Single sprig wrapped in a sheet of tissue paper. Can wrap and send directly with a personal message if this is a gift.

Merino wool tops and pre-felt come in many colours and qualities. I like to think I provide some of the best and I will share my sources with you after you've attended a workshop. At in person workshops a very wide selection of different colours and shades are available.

I buy all my wool tops from suppliers who certify it is Non-Mulesed. Mulesing is the removal of strips of wool-bearing skin from around the breech (buttocks) of a sheep to prevent the parasitic infection flystrike (myiasis). It is illegal in the UK.

It has also been dyed to Oeko-Tex Standard 100: meaning the finished dyed wool has been tested for harmful substances and found harmless for human health.


It's the felting business of Heather Fiona Martin and was borne out of a wet felted pet portrait painting of a beloved Bearded Collie. Tabletop Workshops is simply the teaching arm of the business.

Heather has been making felt with people of all ages with many differing abilities for many years now. It’s a simple process (once you know how) but elements of felt making are quite vigorous and very hands on. If you have arthritis or a similar condition in your hands you may find parts of the process challenging. That being said it’s not stopped anybody before and Heather is very happy to help you with vigorous parts of the process.

Heather's home studio is on an unmade road a little under ten minutes walk from Denmark Hill station with trains running into Victoria Station, Kings Cross (Thames Link line) and London Overground. Or East Dulwich station running into London Bridge is ten to fifteen minutes walk (up hill) away too. A 176, 185, 40 and 484 bus all pass within metres of the house. Alight at Champion Grove.

Once you have booked I will send you a link to "How to Find Us" showing the best route on foot from Denmark Hill.

I recommend loose layered clothing. Working the fibres into felt takes a bit of elbow grease so you may find you want to take your top layer off!
An apron is not necessary but if you prefer to wear one when making then please do bring it along.

There is no parking on Stories Mews itself.

However parking is free on the surrounding roads (eg Grove Lane, Grove Park and Camberwell Grove) after 6.30pm during the week and all day at the weekend.

If you’re cycling let me know the Friday before the workshop so I can make room for your bike in the garage.

This varies a little depending on the type of workshop for:

Public 2D and 3D wet felting: I like to keep the groups small, so a maximum of 4. This provides you with plenty of time for one on one tuition.

Private 2D and 3D wet felting: Still small but I'm happy to accommodate up to 6 if everybody knows each other.
Prefelt collage, up to 6, because participants need less one on one tuition and use less room.

Christmas: Usually up to 10, because these workshops make use of crib sheets and everybody is making pretty much the same thing.

With all my workshops because of last minute cancellations you may end up with a private one on one workshop for the apublic group price.

If you're looking for something for larger numbers of participants I'm usually a) able to come to you and b) tailor something to fit in with your timetable and themes.
