Wet felting workshop: Introduction to picture making in Henstridge near Stalbridge Dorset & Somerset

X

About the Course

Spend a day learning to wet felt to create beautifully crafted, unique pictures. You will be able to explore the possibilities of using felt for picture making. Your 2D felted projects could be later made into framed pictures, wall hangings, book covers, and bags.

We will be making our wet felt picture projects and will be embellishing the finished felt so you can add depth, texture and detail.

Embellishments such as beads and buttons can also be sewn on by hand, embroidery stitched to add texture and details, as well as adding 3D needle felted details to your work. For example, adding needle felted butterflies, leaves, flowers etc.

This is a truly creative wet-felt-making day!

Suitable for complete beginners and those with some wet felting experience who wish to add to their knowledge and improve their skills.

Maximum Workshop: 2 (July) - 4 (August+) People to allow for distancing

We use as many ordinary household items as possible to make wet felt so there is very little you need by way of additional equipment to continue this versatile craft at home - just felting wool! For needle felting at home, you will need felting needles and a surface to work on such as a foam pad. These will be supplied for use while you are in the workshop.

All the other equipment will be supplied except an apron which you may like to bring. Please wear clothes suitable for crafting (wet-felting can get a bit damp but not very 'wet').

Wet-felting can be quite physically hard work so help is always available if you should need or want some extra umph! and we adapt how we work to be fully inclusive.

You may want to do more work on finishing your picture after the workshop.

Maximum number on workshop is currently 2 people for July (and may increase to 4 people in August).

This class is suitable for adults or accompanied teens. If you are not sure if this workshop is suitable for your teen please ask any questions before booking - always happy to help and advise.

Hot and cold drinks are available throughout the session. Please bring lunch, snacks and any other refreshments which you would like which are appropriate for the length of workshop which you have booked. Please bring your own travel mug or similar if possible.

I had the most brilliant day and learnt so much.
Sally explained all the techniques clearly and I was able to create several pieces with the huge range of resources provided.
The atmosphere was relaxed and sociable - I’d love to come again and have already recommended it to friends.

Response from Craft Workshops:

Thank you Cathy - it was a great day and we certainly did a lot of experimenting with wet felt techniques. I hope to see you again and thank you for recommending the workshops :)

I had a wonderful day with Sally and had arrived as a complete novice. Sally was super organised and all work stations were socially distanced, well stocked and ready to go - the day was structured and learnt a load more than expected and found I really enjoyed the process of making a wet felt picture - great day thanks again!!

Response from Craft Workshops:

Thanks Jen - it was a lovely day, and I hope to see you again soon.

Lovely introduction to wet felting and making a picture, Sally was very relaxed, friendly, and gave good instructions throughout the day, nice small friendly group, would definitely recommend, and hope to go back 😀

Excellent workshop! Sally makes it good fun whilst teaching you in such an easy to understand way. We made three lovely different vessels using different techniques with everything you need supplied. Good company, excellent tuition, will definitely be booking on future courses. Thank you!!

This course was exciting with instant and stunning results. I still can't believe I made three good things in one day! Being told what to do step by step was so reassuring and Sally could spot errors we were unaware of and point us in the correct direction before we ruined our work, that sort of experience would have taken me years to gain, if I had the time to do it! Hugely valuable.

Earlier this year I attended one of Sally’s needle felting courses and loved it! Last Saturday a friend and I did the wet felting course and loved it equally as much!
Sally is a wonderful teacher, very patient and encouraging, with a really good sense of humour! We all went home with a picture, a small pot and a bowl ( mine not really a bowl but a nice piece of felt!!) I would definitely recommend Sally’s courses and will be booking more in the future.
Thank you Sally.

I attended this course on 13th July 2019 as a follow on to a previous needle felting day with Sally to refresh the process of both needle and wet felting.
It is the third course I have done with Sally and I cannot recommend them enough. It is a very relaxed small group session which means that Sally is able to offer everyone individual tuition as needed.
She provides a warm and welcoming atmosphere along with a good sense of humour. Whether you are a beginner or more experienced there is alway something to learn from Sally’s expertise and she is happy to share all her knowledge openly and encourages you to continue with your chosen craft.
Each day offers a variety of projects so everyone can have a choice and work at their own speed which is brilliant rather than all doing the same thing.
I recommend Sally’s courses and will be booking more in the future and attending her Sunday follow up craft sessions.

This course is fantastic in all respects. Sally provided all materials necessary (and more) for you to be able to produce a really substantial piece of art. She is a talented tutor who guided me expertly through each stage, and insisted on supplying me with tea and coffee all day and wouldn’t even let me clear up. The premises were ideal and we had a lovely self contained room for us to work.
All in all, an fabulous day, excellent value and I came away with a new skill I am thrilled about.
Will be booking on another course soon!
Thank you Sally x

A thoroughly satisfying and informative workshop. Thank you Sally for a great session wet felting. I had no idea how to do it before but Sally was patient, encouraging and a great teacher. The day went very swiftly and after as much tea or coffee as we wanted, plus all the materials we needed, we all were very successful with our final pieces. I loved the day and would definitely do another.

Response from Craft Workshops:

Thank you for sharing your Birthday with us Majulaa - it was lovely to have you attend the workshop day. Thank you for the wonderful review - I am so pleased that you enjoyed learning about wet felting, and the pieces which you made on the day were fantastic! Look forward to seeing you again soon.

Attended this class yesterday and completely loved it. Sally made the class completely accessible to beginners and encouraged our own creativity whilst guiding us with the technical side of things.

With the chance to try a sample piece first we could try out some different ideas without committing to a final piece, which was a great aspect.

Really pleased with how my final picture came out and this is definitely down to the excellent guidance and advice along the way from Sally.

Would definitely return for another class! Thank you so much xx

Response from Craft Workshops:

Thank you for attending the Wet Felting course Eliana - it was great to meet you and I am very pleased you enjoyed the course. Your wet felted pieces were fantastic! Look forward to seeing you again soon.
