You will need to bring a packed lunch with you, Tea, coffee and biscuits are provided and available throughout the day. Please bring your own cup though eco paper cups are available. 


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. 


All the equipment and materials are supplied. All classes are 10.30 to 3.30pm unless otherwise stated.




I am keeping the fees the same as last year as I want these to be affordable classes which help with wellbeing and give an opportunity to learn a new craft without financial restrictions. Needle felting is a very mindful and absorbing craft which can be enjoyed by all ages and abilitities. You will go home with completed items and the cost of all the materials is included. 







Relax, Felt and Create

Many of those who come on my courses are regulars and this is a workshop I hold once a 
month where you can come along and experiment with new ideas, develop ones of your own or 
just sit and enjoy a little mindful felting. This workshop is also open to those who haven’t 
felted before and want to learn in a relaxing environment. This is especially suitable for 
those who seek a bit of stress relief or feel that they need a bit of downtime. Lots of oppor-
tunities to explore the creative process of felting. Each month I also bring additional prod-
ucts and inspiration that I have been working with. It is also a good way of making all those 
Birthday and Christmas gifts!! 

This workshop is held on the following  dates: Saturday 21st October, 

Sunday 19th November and Saturday 2nd December




Sunday 22nd October

Celebrating Autumn

The Autumn brings with it the glorious colours of golds, greens, browns, bronzes, yellows and 
oranges along with images of falling leaves, pumpkins, apples and the Harvest. There is so 
much for us to enjoy and celebrate. These colours are beautifully recreated when hand 

dyeing and from these colours you will find endless inspiration. This is always a popular class  
as there are so may possibilities to explore. Tables of hand dyed fleece,  blanket and pre-
felt, as well as beautiful paper napkins with images of Autumn , felted leaves , cut outs and 

embellishments will be available to work with. Create an Autumn landscape, make a candle 
wrap, felted mug warmers, book covers , purses, winter slippers.. ..whatever you choose to do 
it will help your well being. There will be a little something on your table to help you get in 
the mood for celebrating!!



 Saturday 18th November

Creative Felting  

Today  the workshop is a little different as we will be working with various techniques and  
will be incorporating  different materials into our felting. As many of those who attend my 
classes on a regular basis know I am always experimenting with different mediums. Today will 
be no exception! We will be doing a little wet felting, creating silk paper,  using embellish-
ments and cut outs and so much more. Don’t be alarmed if you see a soldering iron along with 
my felting needle on my table!!




Sunday 3rd  December

Christmas Tables

This was a very popular class last year. Today we will be celebrating the advent of Christmas. 
There will  be several tables set up and each one has a different project for you to complete. 
Some are very quick and easy and others require a bit more effort. Some tables have 
wrapped gifts on them for you  to take home but you will need to make something felted to 
go with it. The idea is that you go home with items to decorate your home as well as gifts to 
open on Christmas Day including a project for you to do over the holiday. To get us all into 
the spirit of the event there will be some Christmas goodies to eat and warm Cinnamon Apple 
drink to enjoy.
