We will be creating amazing needle felted magical figures. During this workshop you will learn how to make your own unique fantasy figure where you can let your imagination run wild. The figures are approximately 16 inches and needle felted over a wire armature. You will be taught how to build an armature and how to build your core wool around your armature, within this class you will also be taught how to needle felt faces, add hair and make a needle felted jacket for your figure. Betty will teach you how to make the figure you created alive full of character and it is really up to you what character your figure will inherit.

I am very new to felting, but I am definitely hooked, the wet felting flower workshop was brilliant. Lens is a very talented teacher, who also listens to her pupils. It was a very relaxing day, and I came away with a fantastic flower made by me!! an original. and I also met some very nice people with whom I have so much in common.
A wonderful workshop whether you are new to wet felting or have tried it before. Always a relaxed, friendly, informative experience. Lena shares her huge knowledge so openly and encourages you to experiment with colour and textures of your own choosing. It's a fabulous feeling to create your own unique piece of wearable art and gain new skills at the same time. A great way to de-stress too!
Another wonderful felting session with Lena felting flowers. Thoroughly enjoyed the day and Lena is a great teacher, the sessions are friendly and very relaxing. I'll certainly be back again. It's great to go home with a finished article that looks great ..
I loved the course and making flowers it's so exciting to create and the atmosphere is good. Small group of loverly people sharing time and ideas , I am quite passionate about my new hobbie and look forward to more classes with Lena
This was my second workshop with Lena; the first was needle felting. Both workshops were great. Everything is explained and you have time to create, you're not rushed at all. You even have time to break for coffee and cake. I would recommend any of Lena's workshops and will probably attend more myself.
Wet felted flowers is my second felt Workshop. I enjoyed this workshop . Lena was very discriptive talkers us through step by step making it easy to understand. Lena is fantastic at being very patient. I was able to take my time. I suffered severe anxiety and never thought of being in s group situation like this. These workshops are well structured informative and great fun aswell as being very therapeutic. Thank you look forward to doing my next workshop..
My second workshop with Lena and it was a great experience. Lena's passion for her work is so inspiring as is her amazing patience and encouragement. I had never done wet felting before. The instructions were explained thoroughly.
A fun filled afternoon. Highly recommended.
It is a while back I did this course but it's the most memorable course I have ever done. I never worked with wool before and now I am addict working with wool. I was amazed what a beautiful flower I made in just a few hours. Lena is very patient, explaining how to use the wool. She is a fantastic teacher knowing exactly what she is doing and helping everybody when they need help. I highly recommend this course.
