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. During the workshop, I will demonstrate all the techniques you need to learn complete your painting and would be delighted to offer any tips after the workshop for those wishing to continue with felting. I run these workshops for a maximum of 10 individuals to allow plenty of time to answer any questions you may have.
This workshop is suitable for adults and children over 12. Due to sharp needles, it is not recommended for young children. Children over 12 should be supervised by an adult.
Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any queries and thank you for looking!

My daughter and I did this course via zoom, it was really well thought out, a real pleasure and we both thoroughly enjoyed it .
Response from Gwen’s Felted Paintings:Thank you so much for your lovely review Dee. It was lovely seeing you both and I’m so pleased you enjoyed it ☺️
I really enjoyed my first foray into both felting and an online course. I’ve admired felted pictures and often wondered if I could do it as I’m hopeless at art - I can’t draw a straight line with a ruler. But Gwen’s class has converted me. Gwen was very friendly and an expert at her craft. It was also good the way Gwen noticed that some people were ready to move on and showed the next stage whilst making it clear to the others to take their time. I enjoyed the class interaction and definitely would like to do more of this. I’m hoping to sign up some friends for the bluetit course Gwen. Thank you Gwen.
Response from Gwen’s Felted Paintings:Nicola, thank you so much again for this lovely review! I’m delighted that you enjoyed it and very much looking forward to seeing you again :)
Very enjoyable, relaxed course with all materials provided. I was very pleased with my finished mushroom picture.
Response from Gwen’s Felted Paintings:Hello Joanne,
A most enjoyable workshop. I was a complete novice, and it was amazing to produce a a lovely mushroom felted picture in 2 hours. Gwen is an excellent teacher, and imparts her knowledge & skills very effectively via Zoom. All materials amply supplied in the kit which was dispatched to arrive in good time for the workshop. Enough wool left over to attempt another picture which I definitely will. Great to have learned a new skill & looking forward to doing another workshop in the future.
Response from Gwen’s Felted Paintings:Hi Beverly,
I completed Gwen's needle felting bee course, my first live on line course and it was brilliant. Gwen was easy to contact, quick to respond to queries and an excellent teacher. The kit contained loads of wool , plenty to have another go . The class was well run with just enough general chat to make you feel comfortable and lots of help and encouragement. Looking forward to seeing her new designs and trying another course.
Response from Gwen’s Felted Paintings:Lynne, thank you so much for your lovely review. I’m so pleased you enjoyed it and it would be great to see you again if you fancied joining another workshop at some point :)
Brilliant class, really enjoyed learning a new craft. Gwen was a fantastic teacher and really put me at ease. Really pleased with how my bee turned out, mad there’s enough wool in the kit to make at least one more. Thankyou so much for a lovely afternoon!
Response from Gwen’s Felted Paintings:I am so pleased you enjoyed the workshop Nicki! It was lovely meeting you and your little dog :). Thank you so much for your kind review, it really does mean a lot. Happy crafting and best wishes, Gwen
Gwen is very sweet and an amazing facilitator. The kit arrives two weeks before the course with everything you need. I was worried about having the class in the zoom, worry no, you won't miss anything, you will be able to see all the demonstration cristal clear. I definitely looking to take another class with her.
Response from Gwen’s Felted Paintings:Hi Angela. Thank you so much for your lovely review and for being such great company during the workshop :). It would be great if you fancied joining another workshop in the future. But in the meantime, happy crafting and I look forward to seeing those felted soaps. Best wishes, Gwen :)
Really enjoyed needle felting a bee with Gwen. I was a complete beginner and thought the relaxed tuition and social interaction with others was superb.
Response from Gwen’s Felted Paintings:Thank you so much for your review Lynn! I am so pleased that you enjoyed the workshop. It really was lovely meeting you.
I thought it was a great workshop. Gwen was very warm and helpful and I quickly felt very relaxed in the class and found learning the needle point felting really enjoyable. It was lovely that there was time to chat with others in the group also. Thankyou very much Gwen for a lovely class.
Response from Gwen’s Felted Paintings:Aw, thank you so much for your lovely review! I'm delighted that you enjoyed it. It was lovely meeting you both. I hope you find some time to do some more felting again in future, your bees were lovely :)
My daughter's and I did the needle felted mushroom with Gwen. Absolutely loved it. The kit was superb and provided everything we needed. It was the first course I have done via Zoom and it worked out perfectly. Instructions and video link was clear, so we were easily able to follow and managed to get our mushrooms completed. Think I have found a new hobby. Thanks Gwen.
Response from Gwen’s Felted Paintings:Thank you so much Belinda! It was lovely meeting you both and I’m delighted that you enjoyed it :)
