Carefully designed and packed by Textiles Artist Raya Brown from Magic Wool Art and Craft Studio in Worcestershire. The kit has all materials and tools to make a beautiful wool painting of a Poppy Field (except for fabric scissors and a glue stick). You will need this kit for the ‘Field with red poppies’ wool painting Interactive Online course with live online tuition. See my other course listings for details.
Wool painting or wool watercolour, as some people call it, is a unique relatively new technique which originated in St. Petersburg. This is not felt making. It is about creating a fibre picture using merino wool, silk and viscose. Laying and shaping fibres, blending the colours together, creating beautiful textures and effects is a great experience for complete beginners as well as people with some knowledge of Art and Craft.
Following clear step-by-step instructions you will create an amazing picture with some lovely watercolour effects and textures.
You will enjoy the therapeutic experience of working with natural fibres creating your own wool painting in the relaxing atmosphere of your own home. This beautiful wool fibre picture will make a unique gift for someone special.
You are welcome to buy this kit without attending the interactive online course.

I just wanted to drop you a quick line to say thank you so much for your virtual Poppy Field wool painting tuition today. We have used the above kit that you carefully packed and posted to us which had more than enough materials to make a wool painting.
I can safely say this therapeutic workshop was very much enjoyed and I believe the ladies, not least of all me, were very impressed by what they could craft. The age range was 86 years old to 10 years old and I have received really positive feedback about your delivery; you were enthusiastic, didn’t rush, warm and engaging – so it’s a big thank you from Blesma Outreach NI.
Response from Magic Wool Art and Craft Studio:Dear Fiona,
I had my class with Raya today, making the Field with Poppies picture and I am so pleased with it. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting Raya on Zoom and it was a really nice experience. Raya was so good at her tuition and explanations and demonstrations of all the techniques all through the class. It has made my day today, and I will aim to do more classes with Raya
Response from Magic Wool Art and Craft Studio:Dear Sandra,
I'm delighted with the wool painting kit, it arrived safely, well packed and looking just like the description. I know my sister in law will enjoy making it and I would certainly order again
Response from Magic Wool Art and Craft Studio:Dear Sarah,
What a fantastic art and craft of wool painting! I have learnt a new skill using this amazing kit and attending Raya's zoom course (virtually). I am totally addicted to this therapeutic technique working with natural soft merino wool fibres! I would recommend this course and kit to everyone! What a great way to relax and crate a beautiful wool fibre picture. Thank you Raya. I will see you soon at your 'Sunset' wool painting zoom course.
I received the poppy field wool painting kit with all the beautiful merino wool and silk colours. The illustrations and photographs were easy to follow in a sequence of stages. I attended Raya's online interactive Zoom course where Raya supported me by using her techniques creating a lovely colourful picture. I found it really easy as Raya took me through step by step instructions and guidance how to create a poppy field wool painting. I was amazed how much detail and colour you can get using different fibres. I completed the picture on the same day and I was delighted I was going home with a picture that I had created. I will give this picture to my sister for her birthday as she has recently had a new large kitchen fitted with loads of light shinning through showing off the colours of the poppy field wool painting.
Response from Magic Wool Art and Craft Studio:Dear Sheila,
The service was excellent, my order came within two days. I brought the wool painting art kit for a family member as a gift, I'm sure they will love it when they open it.
The website is really good there are so many courses I would love to try, when things get back to normal.
