Felted Sunset Seascape Kit with option to join a Live Online tutorial
(Landscape 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 brilliant experience throughout. The kit was sent in good time and was really good quality. It included a step by step visual guide which was well put together and very helpful.
The zoom call was brilliant. Content was spot on. Mel has a great way of explaining each step and it was really nice to work through the same steps with others. Next best thing to face to face. Able to have a chat at the same time.
I am super pleased with my final piece of felt. Mel explained how to go on to embellish the work. The tips were helpful and gave me confidence to finish the project.
I can’t wait to make my next piece.
Would highly recommend this course.
Response from Crafts in the Valley:Thank you for the lovely review! Happy Felting x
The whole experience was excellent - the kit was amazing, and, as this was all new to me I was a bit apprehensive! However the online session with Mel was fabulous, so relaxing and friendly, with the step by step demonstrations I was able to produce a piece of work with lovely colours which I am very happy with. Looking forward to trying my second creation! Great medium and value, well done Melanie.
