Lovely Ethical Needle Felting Workshop

About the Course
A lovely original introductory needle felting workshop where you learn to design and make a felted soap and a brooch, using the wonderful and versatile technique of needle felting. As an added bonus the soap you will be using is one of my homemade award winning soaps, organic and natural. The wool we will be using is from either my own Jacob sheep, my Angora goats or from a UK ethical wool supplier. Hosted in lovely country surroundings where you can meet the animals.
Maximum 6 people - more workshops coming soon. Please contact me for a suitable date, weekdays or weekends are available. Suitable for Vegetarians

What's included in the price?
All materials are included, you take home what you make. Although this is predominately needle felting there is a small amount of wet felting involved. Coffee, tea, soft drinks and cake/scones/biscuits are included. You can meet the animals while you're here, say 'hello' to my 23 year old horse Felix, and his friends Dean and Frank the Angora goats, and Arthur and Brendan the Jacob sheep. There are also numerous rescue chickens and ducks and an aviary where my Quaker parakeet Sully may say 'hello' to you.
My niece and I had a wonderful time learning how to needle felt with Rosie at this workshop. She is a great teacher and provides all the equipment and materials needed to create a felted soap and brooch. Following just a mornings tuition, my niece made two hanging felted hearts when she got home.
Thank you Rosie.

It was so nice learning to make felted soap yesterday (which I didn't know existed till now) & it was lovely to meet everyone. Rosie is such a good teacher & encourager that I, a novice, came away with a completed felted soap & a kit to get started with after a really relaxing time in lovely surroundings.
