There will be a sales table on the day and payment for both the course and any sales can be made by credit/debit card.
You will need to bring a packed lunch with you. Tea, coffee and biscuits are provided and available throughout the day.
I try to make the day as informal as possible and give out notes etc to take home to remind you of what we have covered as well as ideas to work on in class.
Needle Felting - Basics and Beyond 10.30 - 3.30
This class is suitable for those who have never needle felted before as well as those who have done a previous course with me and just want to improve their skills. For those who are just learning we will do three items: a brooch, a landscape and a choice of a third item. For those who want to improve their skills and play with new ideas probably already know what to expect...lots of fleece, backgrounds, ideas and inspiration and will be given the opportunity to ‘dive in’ and play.
All materials are supplied with a wide selection of hand dyed and natural coloured fleece to choose from. You will also be supplied with foam, needles and worksheets to take home with you. All this is included in the cost of £25.00
Date: Sunday 6th October
Experimental Needle Felting 10.30 - 3.30
We will be using dyed blanket, prefelt, hand dyed fleece and textured wool. Lots of inspiration and ideas to work on. We will also be exploring ways to make and use silk paper to felt
onto as well as having a go at minimal
wet felting adding felted shapes and silk fibres to create great backgrounds to felt, stitch and embellish on. A day to play, relax and experiment with lots of fleece, fibre and textures to work with. The cost inc materials will be £25.00
The dates available are: Saturday 5th October or Sunday 3rd November
The Big Picture 10.30 to 3.30
In this workshop we will be working on a large picture. The mount will be supplied with the course and will then fit a 20 x 16 frame. I will have a box of pictures and photos to give you inspiration however you are welcome to bring along your own idea. We will be using hand dyed fleece, batting and roving and I will be sharing tips and techniques with you. Those who have already done this course are welcome to come and do another landscape.
The cost is £28 for this course as this includes a larger piece of foam plus a quality mount to take home with you.
