About the Course
Ideal for beginners to more advanced felters.
Half day -10am-12.30pm
On this course you will learn to needle felt a small animal or a lovely pictures. By using woolly fibres and small stabbing action with a barbed felting needle you will knit the fibres into a form that will grow very quickly. We will sculpt and form it into a unique item that you will be proud to take home - I promise :-).
I have many examples, images animals and landscape pictures if you would prefer to create a picture instead of a 3 D structure. But do bring your own images along.
If you do not see a date to suit you or have an enquiry regarding a group booking then please get in touch.
We will cover all needle felting basics and safety.
Look forward to meeting you

I attended a half-day dry needle-felting course, my third class with Barbara. I have previously made a wet felt picture, and a handbag. Today I made a robin and a penguin. I have been very pleased with everything I have made, and they have been much admired by friends and family.
It was a lovely afternoon out with a difference. There was a lovely relaxed atmosphere, combined with excellent teaching. Thank you, Barbara.

First real attempt at dry felting. I really enjoyed the day and impressed myself and my family, of producing a felt rabbit which was pleasingly convincing! It also got the ah! factor from work colleagues and has already got me wanting to make more. Most enjoyable!

I attended Barbara's Wet Felt Picture Taster Session and thoroughly enjoyed it!
Barbara's lovely studio provided the perfect creative environment to learn the skill of wet felting and her friendly teaching style made even a novice like me, feel confident that I could create something beautiful.
I'm now hooked and can't wait to try another of Barbara's workshops.
