Felted Landscape Kit with option to join a Live Online tutorial
(Sunset Seascape and Winter Scene projects are also available - see my other listings).
Crafts in the Valley’s Felting Kits have everything you need to create beautiful watercolours in wool at home, using wet felting and needle felting techniques. The kit allows you to follow the example picture exactly, or you can choose to be more experimental, and change the composition, colours and design as you wish. The kit provides enough wool to complete the project, plus one other felted picture (to be made independently).
This listing includes the full felting kit with equipment, wool fibres, instruction booklet (with step-by step guide, photos and written instructions) and the option to attend a 3hr live zoom tutorial.
If you already have wet felting and needle felting equipment, you can purchase another kit, which includes the wool fibres, instruction booklet and option to attend the Zoom tutorial - see my other listings.
These projects can be completed using only the materials and instruction booklet, so if you can't attend the Zoom tutorial you can still complete the project independently.
During the Zoom tutorial you will be able to work through the project with myself and the other online participants. You will need to have all your materials and equipment ready for a 10am start on the scheduled dates.
We will work through the wet felting process as a group which will take about 2-2.5hrs. I will then demonstrate adding fine detail and texture by needle felting wool fibres into the felted fabric picture. We will then discuss other ways to embellish your work and you can continue working on your Felted picture in your own time.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

This was a fun course - I learned so much and Melanie was a brilliant teacher. It worked well over zoom and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending it.
I had a lovely afternoon last week creating my first felt landscape. The kit that came in advance was beautifully put together and instruction book so thorough. The online class went at a gentle pace and let me thoroughly enjoy the experience. I am so delighted with my finished landscape and the kit came with enough extra to do another one so I could involve my 10 year old too! There are two happy felters in my house after this course. I would highly recommend it!
I thoroughly enjoyed my online session with Melanie and would greatly recommend to anyone wanting to learn a new skill and experiment!! Melanie presented easy to understand instructions in a lovely engaging manner and I am very happy with my “work of art!”
online class was good fun, went through process clearly and ended with a good piece if craft that I can continue to work on along with the equipment and basic skills to make further pieces. highly recommemd. Melanie was a lovely tutor.
Response from Crafts in the Valley:Thanks for lovely review. It was great to meet you online. I look forward to seeing your finished felted picture.
I really enjoyed the Course. My first time with felt and also first zoom tutorial. Was very enjoyable and didn’t feel that it was a remote learning. Melanie is a great teacher and was encouraging throughout with clear instructions as well
Highly recommend it
Response from Crafts in the Valley:Thanks for the great review! And for emailing me a photo of your finished work. Enjoy experimenting with the rest of the wool! Best wishes, Melanie
I thoroughly enjoyed doing my on-line felting workshop. I'm probably one of the least arty/crafty people around but with Melanie's instruction and guidance I was able to complete my felting picture (and quite proud of it too!). The written instructions which are issued with the kit beforehand are very detailed and easy to follow. There's enough material in the kit to create two pictures so I'm about to start the second one on my own and I know where I can maybe make some improvements. I definitely recommend the online course.
I have done numerous courses with Melanie and they have all been great. This online workshop was a fab opportunity to do another course with her from the comfort of my own home. Would definitely recommend this to help keep the creative juices flowing throughout winter.
I can highly recommend Melanie's on-line tuition and felting kit which was good value and contained all I needed. She was helpful and informative. It was great to be able to take part in a class from my kitchen! I am very pleased with my felted landscape and would like to take another class - hopefully in a classroom situation but if lockdown lasts might buy another kit.
Response from Crafts in the Valley:Thanks for your review! Take care, and I hope to see you online or on an in-person course soon.
I attended the online felting course earlier this year and I'm hooked! The Zoom course worked surprisingly well and Melanie's instructions were clear and encouraging. She is a great teacher and the course is well designed and clearly communicated.
Response from Crafts in the Valley:Thanks Rosemary! I really appreciate your feedback. xx
