About the Course

Needle felting is a process using barbed needles to mat woollen fibres to felt. Once felting is complete you can either hand embroider or machine embroider on top of the felt to further enhance your design. During the session you will work on creating a picture - you may not complete the picture during the 2 hours but you will be well on your way to creating a beautiful piece of art. During the course Virginia will demonstrate machine embroidery using dropped feed dogs

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

What's included in the price?

All materials included but you will need to bring threads - including embroidery threads if you have any, embroidery needles, scissors and any pictures that you have for inspiration - although Virginia will be bringing a good selection.

Refreshments provided.

Once again I had a really enjoyable time learning this addictive new skill. A clear initial demonstration was followed by knowledgeable encouragement and guidance and the provision of a wide range of fantastically coloured wools that inspired and enabled the completion of a needle felted picture that I can't wait to frame and hang on my wall. A relaxing, friendly and enjoyable morning. Thank you Virginia.

Three generations of the family attended a needle felting workshop.. Virginia gave us a clear and simple demonstration. Virginia made us feel at ease and was full of encouragement a helpful directions regarding composition and colours. The time flew by, we found it hugely enjoyable and all three came away with a completed picture. We will be back to do the Wet Felting course.

I attended Virginias wet felting course a complete beginner. We started with a demonstration then straight into creating our own piece. Virginia was informative, encouraging and very knowledgeable about this addictive craft. I thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience and cannot recommend enough! Thank you again and can't wait to attend another of Virginia's courses.

Simple , straight forward demonstration, then quickly down to work with constant help & encouragement. A wide variety of materials to work with allowing a satisfying piece of work to be produced in a short period of time. A lovely work space.

Thank you Virginia.

Massively exceeded my expectations. I had no ability whatsoever but with Virginia's help I produced a completed piece of work, which so impressed my husband he had it framed. Can't wait for the next course.
Excellent instruction, lots of inspiration and quality materials to work with.

Fantastic workshop - lots of freedom to get to know this addictive technique but skilled guidance when requested. Virginia provides plenty of inspiration and all the tools so within a couple of hours I had the basis for my lavender field picture ready to embellish at home. Hugely enjoyable!

Great fun doing needle felting in September. 3 of us on course. Loads of materials, helpful direction on colours and perspective, images to work from. Delighted that in 2 hours managed a half decent picture. Great value too!

I completed a beginners wet felting course today, it was brilliant, I took my own sunset photograph with me and recreated it in felt, I am thrilled with the result, thank you so much, I was encouraged all the way by Virginia and her help mate Liz, I did not think I could create something sooo good, thank you again.
