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 
inspiration. 

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

Dates:  Sat  18th June,    Sun 17th July    Sat 20th August THIS CLASS IS NOW FULLY BOOKED. THERE IS SPACE ON SUNDAY 21st  FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO DO WHAT IS OFFERED ON THIS COURSE IF YOU DON'T WANT TO DO A LANDSCAPE. PLEASE EMAIL ME FOR FURTHER DETAILS.

MASTERCLASS  It's all about techniques and how to use them to your advantage!!     

This class is not really suitable for beginners however if it is the only date you can 
manage then please let me know as I may be able to accommodate you if there are not 
too many beginners coming along.

This is open to those who have previously done a class with me before including those 
who have done any of the classes in this programme. We will be exploring various tech-
niques which includes adding elementary stitching, basic weaving, experimenting with 
napkins., incorporating tweed and fabric and much more,. I will be bringing along a 
special hand dyed lot of fleece as well as dyed ‘nepps’, Harris Tweed scraps etc. At 
the end of the day you will go home with some homework to do. We will also look at 
ways of framing/displaying your work. Please also note that if you have already done 
this course then you are still welcome to come along and work on thos new techniques
