About the Course

Join us at our needle felting workshops. The workshops are suitable for anyone wishing to have a go at needle felting for the first time or those wanting to develop their skills.

You’ll leave with a unique creation made by you.

We have various colourways to choose from this year, we’ll provide all the materials and will get you in the spirit with homemade cake, tea & coffee.

Once you create a Needle Felted creation, you'll be inspired to make more! Needle felting is an ancient craft, which involves using barbed needles to sculpt carded wool into shapes. It is great fun, very therapeutic and quite addictive

The workshop is for ages 16 and up please as we are using sharp tools will have a flexible finish time to ensure you go home with a completed creation.

I have now attended three felting courses and have thoroughly enjoyed every time. It is a very friendly workshop and Millie is so patient and she believes no question is a silly one which makes you feel comfortable asking them. It is small classes so it is easy for Millie to be with everyone on hand to help. I travel 60 miles to get to these classes, that says how good they are and Millie's sister Jane makes the most wonderful cakes.That's an incentive too.

I attended this workshop & was very impressed. Milly is a very patient & friendly teacher allowing the group to feel at ease & not be afraid to ask questions, I was amazed how quickly the 3 hour session went. A true transformation took place from batts of wool to a wonderful little Santa, I now feel I have the basic skills to complete more needle felting projects. Would thoroughly recommend.

I did this three hour workshop. Everyone was made to feel totally at ease doing something completely new and we all enjoyed every minute. We all came away with a lovely handmade Santa Gnome. We all said we will definitely be back to do another workshop. Thank you Milly for your time and patience

Had a great time on this workshop. I'm not very crafty but I was hooked from the moment we started. It's so addictive and the morning went so quickly, I didn't want to go home! Milly is a fantastic teacher, and being part of a small group meant you get lots of personal tuition. Jane's *cake is great too & real china *(Milly's lovely sister)

Attended this workshop and thoroughly enjoyed it and I love my unique pumpkin. I'm a complete beginner and was so pleased that I was able to complete an item that didn't look amateurish. The delicious homemade cake itself was worth attending for! I will definitely be back for more - I'm hooked now.
