Description

The course is self paced, and you can start at any time. Create wonderful needle felted fabric embellishments that can be used in textile art, dressmaking, on interiors projects or just as therapeutic textile play. Watch 'over my shoulder' as I demonstrate techniques and ideas, then encourage you to play. You will learn how to make experimental felted weaves with water soluble fabric, crunch silk to create texture and much more. Mix up ideas and open your eyes to the potential of your stash and it's endless possibilities! I love needle felting and have published two books on the subject, Simply Needle Felt and Boho Felt Crafts, I even taught Kirstie Allsopp the craft on TV!

What's included in the price?

Short, simple videos exploring the possibilities of needle felting. When you enrol on any of my courses you gain access to my private Facebook group. I pop in most days to give feedback and advice. You can meet other students, share your progress, ask questions and cheer each other on.

What you will need

A stash of wool, fabrics and fibres. A hand punch tool and mat. An embellisher machine (not essential) Water soluble fabric (for one module)

Based in Gloucestershire, I create the seeds of ideas for both fashion and interior textiles. I love to re-imagine and combine techniques including applique, needle felting and patchwork; selling my work internationally to clients including Dior, Chanel and Louis Vuitton. I have exhibited across the UK and published six books. I graduated from Loughborough College of Art with a 1st class honours degree in Multi-Media Textiles before completing my Masters in Fashion at Central St Martins.
