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. Tea and cake provided. Hosted in lovely country surroundings where you can meet the animals. £25 per person.
Maximum 6 people - more workshops coming soon.
The workshop will run from 10am - 1pm approximately.
Please contact me if you require a different date.

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 22 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 aka 'Tommy Shelby' may say 'hello' to you.
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.
