Join me for an online needle felting workshop where you can make your own little felted toadstool 🍄. You will be sent a kit containing all the materials you need ahead of time.
Classes are taught via zoom, allowing you to have a crafty couple of hours from the comfort of your own home 😊. Zoom is easy to use. I will set up a meeting and will send you a link ahead of time. Feel free to log in 15 minutes before the workshop starts so you can get settled in and I can answer any of your queries.
My online sessions last 2 to 2.5 hours allowing plenty of time to interact and ask questions. There will be a maximum of eight people per class and there will be a camera focussed on my desk to allow me to demonstrate each stage of the work and any particular techniques.
I have run workshops in the past on different subject matters including bumblebees and cacti. If there is anything in particular that you fancy felting, or if you’re interested in a specific date, please feel free to contact me.
If you will be redeeming a CraftCourses gift voucher on this course, the voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
A kit, containing all the materials you need, will be sent to you ahead of time. This will include:
* A foam mat
* Five or more colours of wool
* Two barbed needles
* A piece of linen with a template;
* An embroidery hoop to frame your piece.
The workshop is £30 including the kit and delivery for U.K. participants. There is an extra charge for delivery overseas.
Classes are run via Zoom, so please ensure that you have a suitable device and strong internet connection.

Amazing class! Gwen is so patient and her tuition is excellent. The kits arrived in plenty of time and you couldn’t buy better quality supplies. I loved this class and can’t wait to book another!
Response from Gwen’s Felted Paintings:Jeanie, thank you so much for your lovely review! It was lovely seeing you again 😊
I had an amazing time at this workshop! I've never attempted needle felting before and was pleasantly surprised how much fun it was. The kit arrived promptly through the post and had everything needed. Gwen, who runs the workshop, is a wonderful teacher and was really cheerful. Her instructions were clear and worked fantastically well over zoom. Will definitely be booking again!
I did a felting course with Gwen on Zoom, it was brilliant, really good fun, easy to follow instructions and a great way to relax. I made a picture of a cactus plant in a pot and it looks really good. I have it on my wall in my home office and when I look at it I am reminded of that afternoon. Thanks Gwen, when I have time I will definitely do another!
Response from Gwen’s Felted Paintings:Thank you so much for your lovely review Louise. I’m delighted that you enjoyed it. Your cactus was lovely :)!
I have really enjoyed this course - the kit provided was excellent and Gwen was a great teacher in explaining everything! Both my sister and I managed to have a nice finished piece by the end of the workshop and we never done any felting before. We really enjoyed it and I would highly recommend this course to everyone !
I am not a particularly creative person but was persuaded to have a go at this by a friend. It was actually really good fun and I did much better than i thought i would. I've never really done much craft work before but Gwen was really good at explaining how to make the picture so in the end mine didn't look too bad for a beginner! It was a really relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Would definitely recommend this course. It was a great way to spend an afternoon and I now have a picture I made myself to put on my wall.
