About the Course
Come along and join a small group of like-minded people and learn all about this fascinating and therapeutic craft!
We will start with an introduction to the tools and materials. You will get your own tool kit including a set of felting needles to take home. In the morning we will make a simple Lincoln Longwool sheep and in the afternoon move onto a more intricate cute little fox.
You can either bring a packed lunch with you or we can order in for you on the day. You will leave confident (addicted ;) and ready to take on any needle felt project that takes your fancy.
All supplies, homemade cakes and biscuits, unlimited hot drinks and a warm and friendly welcome included!

Thoroughly enjoyed the beginners course, very relaxed, friendly venue. Claire was very informative in the art of needle felting and an excellent teacher.

Response from Claire's Crafts:Thank you Julie, was lovely to meet you and thank you for coming cx
Thoroughly enjoyed these workshops. I learnt a lot of new skills here, welltaught at a managed rate. The construction was nothing like I had imagined, but feel I now have the skills to repeat this again. I am looking to book another course as it was so well led, however cannot find a Saturday with the animals I want to do on the schedule at the moment. If I do I will definitely return for the day. Well worth it, excellent value.

I attended the course with a friend who doesn’t normally do craft but is a crochet fan. We both thoroughly enjoyed the day. Everyone was friendly and helpful and there was a mixture of abilities. I picked up lots of tips and ways of improving the Fox I’d tried to do on my own at home. Think the Fox was abit fiddly for my friend and maybe we should have just attended the morning one as she found sitting for a long time abit much. I however could have stayed for a week. Shall definitely come again. Thank you
