About the Course

During this workshop you will be introduced to the techniques to create your own unique piece of beautiful felt art. You will be guided step by step to laying down the fibres to create a piece of felt using Merino wool and different fibres to complete your final piece. Once you have laid down your fibres it will be time to turn it into felt using the simple techniques of agitation, rolling and fulling. I will then demonstrate how you can add free motion machine embroidery to add detail and definition to your picture which you can do at home if you wish. When you return home your completed unique picture will then be ready for you to frame it, make a wall hanging, turn it into a felted book cover or turn it into a cushion cover.

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

The class was very enjoyable and fun . Gillian is very knowledgeable and very professional and also sent us home with a hand out. At the end of the session you could purchase a starter kit at a very reasonable cost to have a go at home . I will definitely do more courses with Gilly gets Crafty.
