About the Course

A creative workshop in this gorgeous florist venue - Wild Flowers High Street Standish. Led by Artist Catherine Carmyllie, this workshop will guide you through the steps of designing, planning, and rolling techniques for felt and making your own wet felted beads. Depending on a student's speed there is time to make 2 jewellery necklaces or 1 x garland.

Felting is a relaxing & creative activity which produces a very distinctive stylised look. Felted beads are still hand made by Nepalese women in large scale quantities, an ancient textile skill used then to make clothing, rugs and house hold items. How happy friends and family will be to receive a gift which is totally handmade!

No previous experience necessary. Age 10 upwards. Ideal for a creative beginner or somebody with more experience looking to practice their skills.

Choose from over 25 merino wool & silk colours or mix together to produce your own shades. You will also learn how best to string them together and finish the ends to make the necklace adjustable. Alternatively make larger beads & string into a garland.
