Fun with Felt Flowers

flights-of-fantasy - flowers in every colour

About the Course

We are sort of back on track! I am now teaching one to one or small groups of friends - sorry I cannot at this stage agree to teach two or more individuals who don't know each other! I hope that by next year the strings will be loosened somewhat.

Fun with felt flowers gives beginners all the basic information to learn felting around a resist. In the three and a half hours, students will make two different flowers, using different techniques, along with different centres. Workshops start at 10am. At the moment I can only teach up to five students at a time and they must be one group (ie chums!) I can also travel within 20 miles if someone wants a group of friends (minimum 5 participants) in their own house or school. Fabulous idea for a hen party! Please note, though, I do charge mileage.

While we are waiting to get back to nearer 'normality', please check out my other listings for Workshops in a Wallet. These include Fun with Felt Flowers at Home and Gone to Seed at Home, covering much of what you would learn with me here in West Horsley, as well as newer workshops - Loving Lavender and Creepies and Crawlies.

While I won't be able to answer queries as they arise, I will be happy to answer emailed questions if you have any as you progress through the workshop instructions or you can telephone me between 9.30am and 4pm. These first two Wallet also include a voucher towards doing the workshop with me at a later date. Please click on 'See more from this course organizer' button below.
Stay safe!

Please note I cannot teach children without a responsible adult accompanying them and both must be booked on the course.

If you will be redeeming a CraftCourses gift voucher on this course, the voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

A very enjoyable and informative introduction to felting. I really enjoyed the time is spent with Nancy, not only because I learnt a new skill but she is a brilliant teacher. I took this class to then teach my students in secondary school and Nancy was great a giving me insights to teaching this to others. She clearly has experience of sharing her knowledge of felting to a variety of age groups and abilities.

I will be doing more felting in the future and if I've any more questions I know Nancy will be the lady to ask.

Response from flights-of-fantasy:

I'm looking forward to seeing what your students produce!

I had an absolutely great time on this course. Nancy is an excellent teacher and explained all the techniques in a clear and simple way. I was delighted with the 2 flowers that I made and I am looking forward to trying to make more on my own.
