About the Course

Join us to create a festive, needle-felted decorative item, using native fleece and barbed needles. You could make an elf, a polar bear or a robin!

We will be needle-felting a sculpture using the core wool method and barbed needles. The barbed needles are used to fuse the fibres and sculpt the wool into your preferred creature.
You will be using, and finding out about, native hand-dyed wool, and the different methods of felt-making.

This workshop is suitable for all levels, as Emma will be on hand with models, resources and 1-2-1 support for each participant.

At the end of the session you will have a finished homemade item to take away with you.

Please do bring photographs or books to work from too.

A wide range of materials are available for you to choose from. Please bring lunch.

There will also be the opportunity to purchase a kit to go home and continue to needle felt!

Tutor: Emma from FfolkyFfelt

NB. There is an additional £10 per workshop for materials, to be paid in cash on the day.

Places are limited to ten participants per event and must be booked in advance.

Review = “I’ve never tried any kind of felting before – a complete beginner in every sense of the word. The workshop was brilliant, so much choice of materials in incredible colours, the day was extremely well thought out, accommodating beginners like me, yet providing a setting where more experienced felters could also get the most from it. Emma managed to find that perfect balance of offering tuition, guidance and help, or letting us guide ourselves when we needed/wanted to. It was a very relaxing and creative day, fab venue and a nice group of people; allowing everyone to have some 1-1 time with Emma as well. I loved the workshop and was so proud of what I managed to achieve with my day, definitely worth it and would highly recommend Emma as a teacher and artist.” Martine Finlay Feb 2017
