New - Courses in Needle Felting and Dyeing
The following workshops will be held in Islesteps Hall. As it is spacious, well equipped with tables and warm. The hall is located just a couple of miles from Dumfries on the Solway Coastal road. Full directions will be given when booked.
At the present time I have only organised workshops for February and March until I see
how my work load goes for the Spring.
The felting classes can have a max of 15 participants however I can only have a maximum of 10 on the Dyeing workshops.
To book a place please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org or text me: 07901272294
If you have not attended a class before then a non refundable deposit of £10 is required and can be paid by cheque or by BACS. I have had to change my payment policy due to the number of no-shows on previous workshops. The balance can be paid by debit or credit card at the class.
There will be a sales table on the day and payment 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 re-mind you of what we have covered as well as ideas to work on in class.
Creative Needle Felting
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.There will be an opportunity to do a larger picture either as a traditional landscapes, an abstract or an atmospheric one. I am dyeing some roving and fleece locks especially for this course and will demonstrate how to add a misty effect, use locks to show clusters of heather and flowers and many other techniques.
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
The date for this course is: Sunday 30th June. Limited spaces available.
SORRY, THIS CLASS IS NOW FULLY BOOKED.
