Festive felting workshop with Lisa at Melken jacobs



Do you fancy some festive fun…? FESTIVE FELTING WORKSHOPS 🎄🎅 ☃️ ❄️ 

We are excited to tell you about our new Christmas decoration workshops. These workshops will teach you everything you need to know to make your own needle felted Christmas decorations and gift tags or even have a go at making a 3D robin!! 

Our needle felting workshops are held in “The Woolly Wagon “ which has far reaching views out over our beautiful farm and across to scenic Dartmoor. It is a fantastic venue for our workshops and we are looking forward to sharing it with you all. We are near Okehampton, West Devon. 

After a quick introduction to a couple of our woolly friends we’ll head into the woolly wagon and you’ll learn the principles of needle felting and then we’ll get stabbing!! 

All wool and equipment is provided with the option to purchase needle felting kits as well! 

Minimum of 2 and maximum of 4 people.

If you don’t have the time for one of daytime workshops then take a look at our evening classes which we also offer, via the "more from this maker" button below.  

The workshops are held on our farm which is a proper working farm so please be prepared for mud and unlevel ground and dress appropriately!!
