FELT AND CREATE! 10.30.-3.30
This is a monthly class. It is for those who want to just come along , switch off and
create. It is also for those who want to learn a new craft and explore the world of
needle felting but it also for those who want to explore the possibilities. Suitable for
beginners as well as the regular class participants. Each month will alternate between
Saturdays and Sundays.
I will provide lots of hand dyed fleece, prefelt, various backings and fabrics as well as
Why have I decided to offer this class? It’s because I strongly feel that coming along
to create, play with ideas, and be surrounded by colour and texture is good for your
mental health. Being able to do so in a friendly environment and receiving encourage-
ment can also help. There are times when you need to take time out for yourself and
embrace a slower pace and this could work for you.
The cost of £28 includes materials, project sheets, tuition and refreshments.
Note: You are not committed to coming along every month. This is not a club or a se-
quence of classes. Each date is a ‘one-off’ so please do not feeel that you are obliged
to come every month
