About the Course
Spend a day learning how to make a small felt shoulder bag in the pretty surroundings of Great Elm.
I will demonstrate step by step the basic bag form and one surface design, but you can decorate it with your own design. There will be photographs and other bags for inspiration. I will also show you how to make the shoulder strap, which you could equally keep short if you preferred a handbag.
I will send out instruction sheets beforehand for anyone who would like to have an idea what to expect before they arrive.
There will be a couple of things to finish off at home when the bag is dry.
Felting is an extremely satisfying craft to learn and hopefully this would give you the "bug"! I have been a professional felt maker for 7 years and I'm very keen to share the fun!

What's included in the price?
The cost includes all equipment and materials for the day. (There will also be extra wool available to buy if you would like to make another bag at home.) I only ask that you bring towels and a bag or container to take your wet work home.
There will be tea, coffee and cake but you will need to bring your own packed lunch.
Course dates are flexible; please get in touch for the next available date.
