Maker's bio

I was told at school - "Jane - you can't paint", "Jane you can’t draw". So I shut off the artistic side of my brain and pursued other career paths. A few years ago I went on a wet felt-making course and was told that ‘this was the day that would change my life’. And it did. I love making felt - from the creative design process through to the tactile and therapeutic side of massaging the fibres - and want to share my passion with you. Join me and learn the magic of wet-felting.

Gwyneth Wright reviewed: Wet-felting workshop with Fabulous Feltings

"I really loved my day spent with Jane in her riverside studio and brought home three amazing samples created under her supervision. Jane is a great teacher, friendly and answering all sorts of questions about wool, felting, her travels - she also makes a very tasty light lunch!! Will definitely be going back again to learn additional techniques and to have more laughs."

Fabulous Feltings responded:

" It was a pleasure to meet you Gwyneth - you are such a keen and enthusiatic 'learner' that teaching you was no trouble at all! You soaked up the instructions with ease and your samplers - especailly cobweb felting - were divine. I hope to see you again soon - there will always be a warm welcome and another tasty lunch."

JULIE JONES reviewed: Wet-felting workshop with Fabulous Feltings

"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!"

Janis Fry reviewed: Wet-felting workshop with Fabulous Feltings

"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."

Fabulous Feltings responded:

" 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"

Chrystal Murphysmith reviewed: Wet-felting workshop with Fabulous Feltings

"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."

Fabulous Feltings responded:

" 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. Jane"
