About the Course

Only 4 places left
We will use natural coloured wool to needle felt a 2d picture or a 3d animal. We have a great range of coloured merino to create your very own special piece of felted art. We will explore different types of needles as we go through the felting process. A selection of models and images will be available on the day but if you have an image you would like to have a try at creating then please bring them with you.

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above or telephone us. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

What's included in the price?

We provide all the material you need for the day but additional materials are also available to purchase on the day.

We provide refreshments of tea and coffee and cold drinks through the day. If you have milk allergies please bring a small supply of your own. Bring your own lunch, we can refrigerate or microwave as needed but we ask for no seafood as I have a severe allergy.

A totally fabulous day. Thank you so much for a lovely day. We learnt so much and it was great to spend time with family. We loved being able to just explore at our own pace and play with all the fibre. The mince pies were a lovely bonus!

Will be coming again soon

It was a fantastic day and I am glad you all had such a good time and we will see you again next month.

I would not hesitate to recommend this course! :) Such an informative and fun experience. This was my first time doing any kind of craft and I thoroughly enjoyed it. A very relaxing and rewarding experience.

Thank you Emma, It was a fabulous workshop and always good to see what everyone is able to produce. Lovely to see everybody slowly relax and be willing to try lots of different things along the way. Also to be able to see what others are doing and learn from each other. We hope to see you soon x

Thank you so much for such an enjoyable course. After trying to teach myself (rather unsuccessfully, it has to be said!) needle felting from kits, it was a joy to discover that I could achieve a finished product without using polystyrene balls!
I was delighted with my finished dog and frankly amazed at what I achieved within the timeframe!
Rachel and Rhian were fab-excellent instructors and were warm and friendly and made everyone feel very welcome. I would thoroughly recommend attending one of these courses.

Wow, thank you Alison. Your cat was easily recognisable as a cat. I am glad we were able to renew your confidence and inspire you to keep going with felting. We also now have made sure we have a supply of reading glasses available for the close up work to try and help there as well!

We look forward to seeing you soon.

Really enjoyed my day with Rachel and Rhian learning to make a needle felt dog. I felt that the course was excellent value for money and that the tuition was superb. Can't wait to see what courses are available in September.

Thank you Cathy for such kind words! We now have the new courses available for you to choose from as promised. We are so glad you had a good day and enjoyed the process and the final result. Hope to see you soon.

I had never done any felting at all before this workshop. I was delighted to have produced a landscape which my husband immediately recognised as Three Cliffs Bay. The atmosphere was very relaxed and friendly. Many thanks to Rachel and Rhian for such a productive day.

Hi Wendy,

I am so glad your husband recognised the image . You produced a beautiful piece of work and were a joy to work alongside. We hope to see you soon and at the festival of Stitch. I have your colours ready for you to look at for your next project!

Thank you so much Nicky!

I am glad you had a good day and look forward to seeing more photos of your lovely badger. Remember we are here if you need any more support please get in touch.

This was my second skills workshop with Heartfelt 2 Inspire I was made to feel very welcome. I have learnt new skills in felting, along with discovering I also like the look of wet felting.
Rachel is a kind and patient tutor, as I am a qualified question asker!
I will be pleased to recommend these workshops to anyone who want to try this interesting form of working with wool.
I will be returning.
Many Thanks to Rachel and her team.

Thank you Linda, it was good to have you back with us again. Simon the sea gull was a great success and so pleased your husband loved him too!

Who knows what we will create next time!

The course was well organised and resourced with good tutors. Help was always at hand and kindly given. So great to begin learn a new skill. The venue was a good choice with free parking so close by. I look forward to being part of future courses
