You will learn how to make felt using wool and felting needles, how to create the various parts of woodland creatures or birds, and how to put all the parts together and how to finish off your cute creature.

I was lucky enough to have this course bought for me, what a lovely present! I had a wonderful day. Sally is a lovely tutor, so full of knowledge, encouragement and humour! We worked in a small group of people and were able to choose what we made. We all chose either a mole in a pot or a sleeping fox but I think if we all had chosen something different Sally would have taken it all in her stride. I made a fox which actually looks like a fox! I learnt a new skill and I’m definitely going to do more. I thoroughly recommend this course and I will be back for more, hopefully the wet felting later in the year!

Had a wonderful time on this day course. Was a complete beginner and despite being an enthusiastic amateur where brain/eye/hand co-ordination is practically non-existent, I came away with a completed woodland animal that looked close to what it should look like! Sally was extremely encouraging and was able to put me right without me being aware of it. We were able to work at our own pace amongst a small friendly group of like-minded people and the time just whizzed by. Got the bug and will be back for more!

I attended this course with my mum as and early Mother's Day present and we had a fantastic day. Sally is lovely; she really wants you to get the most of out the day and we were not told what to make, we were asked what WE would like to make. Sally really wanted everyone to leave at the end of the day with having made something that they love. Some of us made cute moles and some of us, including me, made sleeping foxes.
Sally is very good at explaining technique (and funny, too!) and she is patient and encouraging; perfect for complete beginners like us!
Both mum and I came away with a cute creatures and a great feeling of achievement. I keep looking at my fox thinking "I made that!". My mum really enjoyed making her mole and had a great day. I highly recommend this course and I am now looking at Sally's other classes, because I know that they will be excellent. Thank you, Sally.

I came home from this course absolutely buzzing and I was so proud of my first needle felted creature; I made a cute mole in a plant pot with a flower. Sally was very patient with us all and made you feel relaxed and confident that you could do it. Sally gave thorough explanations of the various techniques needed and I definitely feel that I could tackle another project on my own. All in all, a thoroughly enjoyable day and I had a lovely little friend to take home with me. Thanks, Sally! 😊

Response from Craft Workshops:

You are very welcome September - I am so pleased you learnt the skills to confidently carry on at home, and also enjoyed the day. Your mole in the flower pot was lovey - and the attention to detail with adding the ladybird was fantastic :)
See you again soon,
Sally

Thank you Sally for a very enjoyable day learning needle felting techniques. I thought I would find it difficult but with Sally's clear explanation, demonstration and encouragement I was able to make a cheeky little robin at my first attempt. It was a very relaxed day with plenty of coffee, biscuits and laughs along the way. I will definitely be booking on a future course and hopefully bringing a friend too.

Another great day, this time learning needle felting. Sally was very patient and encouraging with our efforts. Everything was provided, even tea and coffee, and the work taken at our own pace so that we all came away with a lovely chirpy robin. Sally is an excellent teacher and I shall be going back for more very soon.

All materials were included for this course, along with tea & biscuits :)
The technique was demonstrated and explained really well. If anyone was finding something tricky, Sally took the time to explain it to them until they mastered it. Sally lead the course at our pace, never rushing us. She encouraged us all throughout and we all had a sleeping mouse to take home! I will definitely be booking on future courses. Thanks Sally.
