About the Course
What to expect:
Join textile artist Kat Wood and learn how to create unique and beautiful bowls, vessels and vases using only wool fibres. No previous experience of felt making is required and by the end of the afternoon session you will have a stunning, three dimensional, felted vessel to take home with you.
None at all. This is a beginners workshop and no previous experience of felt making is necessary at all.
Number of places:
There are 7 spaces available for this course. With such a small number of us, everyone will get plenty of one-to-one time and have the opportunity to ask any questions or queries as they come up.
Access to venue:
The workshop room that we'll be using for the afternoon is up a flight of stairs and I'm afraid there is no lift. Feel free to contact me if you need further information or specific details.
There is no parking at this venue. The nearest car park is the Shambles Q-Park, a 4 minute walk away. If you are coming to York via train, the station is about 15 minute walk away or a 10 minute taxi ride.

What's included in the price?
Included in the price are all the tools and materials needed to create one beautiful piece of felt. Tea, coffee, cordial and biscuits will also be provided throughout the afternoon.
What to bring:
All necessary materials will be provided. It would be useful to bring a clean towel and a plastic bag though, as your piece of felt is unlikely to be dry by the time you’re leaving.
What will you take away with you:
A lovely, handcrafted bowl, vessel or vase that is made entirely by you, from lovely, colourful merino fibres
I really enjoyed doing this. Kat delivered the class at a good pace, and in a fun way. Everyone created a lovely bowl, or vase, and I really want to do the course again - thank you Kat.

I really enjoy Kat’s workshops.
She is very knowledgable about her crafts & I was pleased with my colourful felted bowl. Kat also brings humour into her workshops which makes it even more enjoyable. Thank you

Another excellent and interesting workshop. Each step was fully explained and demonstrated by Kat who is always informative and fun.

I really appreciated the small group, it helped bond the group and I don’t think anyone felt (sorry, pun not intended) left out.
The venue was easy to find and a lovely work space.
I appreciated the demonstration at each stage, and explanations as to why we were doing what we were doing.
I enjoyed the chat and encouragement we received from you and each of the participants.
I loved the end product. Who doesn’t enjoy learning a new skill and sense of achievement at the end of it?
