We now open from 12 April. I have put some available dates in but please select 'chat with the maker' to check with me first to see if they are still available (life has a habit of getting in the way!).
Our needle-felting workshops usually start at 10.00 am with an introduction to the tools and methods used in producing the pictures. This is followed by working on a miniature moorland picture using Merino wool fleece.
We then usually have a break for coffee and danish and then continue with a larger coastal scene. This picture introduces you to different types of fibre such as silk, yak and silk blends and merino and tensil.
By the end of the morning our aim is for you to produce two framed pictures for you to go home with.
There is an opportunity to purchase the tools you have been using at the end of the workshop as well as other materials.
Courses are held at mutually convenient days with a maximum of three students - Please select 'chat with the maker' to contact me before booking to agree a date.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
Coffee, danish pastry, all materials, tools and frames.

What a fantastic course and teacher Pip is, I had a wonderful morning making two beautiful pieces I would have happily bought if I'd seen them in a shop! I was a complete beginner. Pip was friendly and welcoming, ensuring there was tea and tasty pastries to keep me going. I would recommend this course in a heartbeat, excellent :)
A really enjoyable, relaxing and productive session! The 3 hours flew by, and I was so pleased with the outcome - two pictures which looked surprisingly professional for a first attempt! Pip was welcoming, patient and encouraging, thank you so much.
Response from Pippaluk Crafts:So glad you enjoyed it.
I attended the course recently with my sister and we both loved it. Pip is such a welcoming host and an excellent tutor. I enjoyed the tea and pastry plus the relaxed kitchen atmosphere. It's a fascinating craft and I'm so pleased with my two framed pictures - they are now proudly displayed in my living room!
Response from Pippaluk Crafts:Thank you so pleased you enjoyed it.
A fantastic morning. I'd never done needle felting before, but under Pip's expert tutelage we quickly picked it up. Lovely chatter, a delicious pastry, and beautiful finished pieces. It was really good to take two framed pictures home. Highly recommend!
Response from Pippaluk Crafts:Thank you really had a good time.
My Sister and I had a lovely morning with Pip and Lola, neither of us had done this before and we both came away with 2 pictures that we were both very pleased with. Pip is a very patient tutor who puts you completely at ease. Would definitely recommend
Response from Pippaluk Crafts:Thank you Shani, it was a pleasure
Thank you Pippa for coming to my house to show us the needle felting. My friends and I thought it was excellent, it was so nice to have two finished pictures at the end, both of which looked great.
Would recommend anyone to have a go, it was very therapeutic.
Thanks to my lovely friend Rachel, I attended Pippa's course, loved it 💖. Pippa was a great teacher and host, felting was so fun 🥰. Thank you Pippa for a lovely, enjoyable beautiful day 💕. Lots of love, Saffet Chilton

Thank you Pip, your workshop was great, well thought out, organised & value for money - with delicious Danish thrown in :-)
Pip is very warm & friendly host and the pictures we created were fabulous.
Response from Pippaluk Crafts:Thank you Rachel, it was a pleasure.
An excellent way to learn the art of needle felting pictures.
Pip was an excellent tutor and excellent host.
Fabulous morning would highly recommend it.
Well worth the cost thank you so much Pip, inspired to do more and have the confidence to give it a go.
Response from Pippaluk Crafts:Thanks Dee, glad you all enjoyed it.
My friend and I had a great morning with Pip and would definitely recommend it. Everything was explained thoroughly and there was no pressure at all. My husband was very impressed with my pictures so the course has inspired me to do more.
Response from Pippaluk Crafts:That's great thank you so much
An excellent course. Pip was really encouraging and we were all delighted with the pictures we produced and had great fun. The session made us keen to do more needle felting. Thank you Pip!
Had a great day with my friend in Pips needle felting course and finished two lovely pictures to go home with. A great course for any levels with a lovely professional lady. And lovely pastries and coffee as well
I attended Pip’s workshop with a friend, as complete novices to needle felt. Pip was superbly organised, encouraging and a great teacher. We accomplished lots; two finished pictures, (moorland and coastal) without feeling rushed- coffee and yummy break included! I would have no hesitation in recommending this workshop. It felt like a catch up with an old friend in her warm kitchen. I’m eager to try more needle felting. What a fabulous morning!
