Wet-felting workshop with Fabulous Feltings

X

Description

Full day (10.00-17.00) wet-felting workshop in my riverside cottage studio. Price is per person but there must be 2 attendees for the course to go ahead.

You will learn 3 types of wet-felting:
- Basic wet-felting - making a fabric from wool fibres by using moisture and heat, without the use of stitching, sticking or sewing.
- Nuno felting - combining an open weave fabric plus wool fibres to create a light-weight felt.
- Cobweb felting - creating a thin and delicate felt with a 'cobwebby' appearance.

At the end of the day you will have learnt the magic of felt-making, re-connected with your creative side, and go home with 3 samplers of your work.

Social distancing is observed and face visors will be worn to comply with current restrictions.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

JULIE JONES - - #28955

My daughter and I first visited Jane when her work was displayed as part of a tour of local craftspeople.This inspired us to book a workshop with her where we were given the opportunity to create 3 pieces of work using different felting techniques under her expert guidance.
All materials were provided along with a delicious lunch within a beautiful location - we were proud of what we had achieved and enjoyed learning a new skill. Thank you Jane!

I had an absolutely wonderful day! Really enjoyed it. Working with the coloured wools and fabrics was very therapeutic and exciting to see how it all worked. I was very pleased with the results and I hope to have another day with Jane who is a good teacher and great company and now I understand how it works I would like to do some more of this wet felting.

Response from Fabulous Feltings:

Dear Janis
Thank you for your kind words - it was great show you how colours work with wool rather than with paints. You wouldn’t think that wool fibres would blend like paint but they do - and the beauty of felt is that you can admire it from both sides!
I look forward to further felting adventures with you!

Jane is a fantastic, friendly and fun tutor and the course was brilliant. I learnt so much from her and we got along brilliantly. The course is great for anyone from total beginners to those with more advanced skills. The small class numbers allow her to focus on you as an individual and give you lots of tips and pointers to help you on your felting journey.

Response from Fabulous Feltings:

Dear Chrystal
Thank you so much for your kind words. You work was so unique! In fact all my student’s work reflect their own unique personalities so there’s never any question of ‘copying’ styles or designs - the wool works its magic and brings out inter artistic talents.

Lovely day with Jane where I learned all about nuno felting - not tried before. I've even used the felt I created to make a lovely cushion cover for my daughter!
Would recommend if you want a relaxing creative enjoyable day with lunch thrown in too.

Response from Fabulous Feltings:

Dear Biddy
I loved your work! You grasped the basics then added your imagination to make a wonderful nuno felted flower cushion cover for your daughter.
In addition to being so creative, wet-felting is so relaxing and very therapeutic.
I’m so glad you enjoyed you day,
Thank-you, Jane

Ali H - - #28648

Had a brilliant day with Jane in her picturesque riverside studio learning 3 welt felting techniques !
Jane made the whole process very accessible - she was well prepared and took us step by step through the techniques.
We were able to choose from her extensive selection of fibres to create 3 pieces from our own imaginations.
Such an inspiring day - I hope to be back for a more in depth class soon !

Response from Fabulous Feltings:

Hi Ali
It was a pleasure to teach you - I’m always amazed at the variety of designs I see in my ‘students’ work - all starting from the same selection of fibres. That’s the magic of felting - you are only bound by your imagination.
It will be lovely to see you again!

Absolutely one of the most enjoyable workshops I've had the opportunity to experience! How utterly amazing that Jane can unleash such creativity in me!
A Fabulous day of colour,chatter,inspiration,imagination,laughter and great company🤗
Under Jane's patient instruction & guidance this day was a truly Fabulous Felting Adventure. Thank you Jane!

Response from Fabulous Feltings:

Many thanks Annie
It was such a treat to have you here and thank you for travelling from Portsmouth - you were able to sample some of the lovely Welsh countryside too!
Watching my ‘students’ have such a relaxing, enjoyable and fun day is just as rewarding as admiring their fabulous pieces of art. I’m so glad to have inspired you!

Helen Evans - - #28618

My sister & I thoroughly enjoyed the wet felting course with Jane- instructions were clearly delivered and we each ended up with 3 pieces of work using slightly differing techniques- there were lots of laughs and we were captivated by the beautiful works created by Jane herself. I’m hoping to do a follow-up course later in the summer and would recommend the day to anyone regardless of whether or not you consider yourself to be particularly creative-

Response from Fabulous Feltings:

Dear Helen
Thank you! It was such a fun day with you and your sister and you were both so creative, producing some beautiful pieces of work.
I just love the way that there are never any ‘mistakes’ with wet felting - you can always add a little bit here and a little bit there - and although your finished piece may not be as apparent as a painting before the massaging begins, it will always be fabulous!
I’ll look forward to seeing you both again for further adventures!

Jane’s course was a delight to attend and gave you an appetite
to attend more classes. A lovely day out and a reward to bring home and enjoy.

Response from Fabulous Feltings:

Dear Margaret
It was wonderful to host you and your friends - you were all so enthusiastic and bounced ideas from one another.
I do hope you’ll return one day for further ‘felting adventures’,
Jane

Judith Shaw - - #28606

This was a brilliant day’s workshop! I can’t recommend it highly enough! I don’t consider myself to be very artistic but Jane was so encouraging and such an enthusiastic teacher that she gave me the confidence to experiment and I was genuinely thrilled with what I was able to produce and take home with me! All this and a truly lovely lunch and the most beautiful setting in the Welsh countryside!

Response from Fabulous Feltings:

Dear Judith
Thank you so much for you kind words! I know how ‘nervous’ you were on arrival - the thought of working on a ‘blank canvas’ almost made you shake!
But working with wool is magical and you soon learnt how to blend the meringue fibres to produce some beautiful pieces and release your hidden talents!
I hope to see you again,
Jane

Catrin Williams - - #28598

Had a fantastic day with Jane at her felting workshop. Lovely relaxed day with great ideas and teaching, especially being a non creative, Jane put us at ease and had lots of materials and resources (and patience!) got us to get stuck in with. The day flew by! Wonderful riverside location, great for us coming from both West, South West and South Wales. Beautiful lunch too!
Great value for money, great day out and with wonderful company!
I have also bought my wedding wrap from Jane for my forthcoming winter wedding and I cannot wait to show it off.

Response from Fabulous Feltings:

Dear Catrin
It was lovely to bring out your artistic side - you produced some lovely samplers. Everyone has the abilty to be creative and working with wool seems to be the perfect medium for us to draw out and explore hidden talents.
I also feel very priveleged that one of my wraps will be part of your very special day.
Thank you, Jane

Claire Denney-Price - - #28595

My daughter and I attended a course with Jane for the day to gain an insight into wet felting, and what an amazing day we had! Jane was so welcoming, knowledgeable and patient in teaching us this incredible art form. We came away with 3 different wet felting pieces that we had created independently under the guide and expertise of Jane. As if learning this was not enough, Jane also provided us with a yummy lunch and treats throughout the day. I would highly recommend Jane's courses and would attend in the future again.

Response from Fabulous Feltings:

Thank you Claire
I loved having you both here to celebrate your daughter's birthday - it was fascinating and a privelege to be part of her home-schooling programme.
I'm so glad you liked lunch too - my 'pea stew' is getting quite a reputation!
I would love to see yo here again for further felting adventures!
All the best, Jane

Karen Mee - - #28594

My daughter and I went on Jane's course in September to celebrate my birthday and what a huge success the day turned out to be. The setting is glorious, the food delicious and Jane was a warm, friendly and inspiring teacher. In fact we have both taken up felting with enthusiasm and have had some successful results!
On the day itself we made three pieces of work under Jane's guidance and unlike other craft courses I've attended we took home things to feel proud of. The inevitable 'mishaps' that all beginners have were rectified in a way that didn't make you feel like an idiot and contributed to the relaxed atmosphere.
All in all I would recommend this course for those who are looking to find a new craft skill or just want a fun day that offers a sense of well being.
We intend to take another course later this year to further our new skills.

Response from Fabulous Feltings:

Dear Karen
Thank you so much - it was a delight to spend time with you and your daughter and we were truely blessed with some wonderful weather! It never fails to surprise me how everyone creates such individual and different pieces from the same 'bundle of supplies'
I look forward to welcoming you both again,
Jane

Olwyn Hughes - - #28591

What a fabulous day spent learning a new skill and unleashing my creative side. Jane’s patience, enthusiasm and wonderful use of colour are inspiring and, because the groups are small, you get lots of individual attention too.
The riverside studio is in such a perfect setting and we enjoyed a very tasty lunch in the garden whilst our first pieces of finished samples dried on the line.
Jane has lots of her work on display around her home which just inspires me to learn more and continue with this particular pastime. I highly recommend her workshops as a day very well spent indeed. Thank you 😍

Response from Fabulous Feltings:

Dear Olwyn, thank you so much for your lovely words. It was a pleasure to host you and your friend - you both produced some stunning samplers and I'm glad that I was able to share with you the magic of wet-felting. I do hope to see you again for further felting adventures!
Keep creating! Jane
