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. 




Explore the Art of Needle Felting

This course is suitable for those who want to learn to needle felt pictures as well as items that can be 
made for the home or as gifts. All materials will be provided and you should go away with at least two com-
pleted items. There will be plenty of samples to choose from, lots of hand dyed fleece and plenty of ideas 
to inspire you. For those who already felt you are can come along and work on either your own ideas or ex-
periment with new ones.

Dates available: Saturday 24th  February FULLY BOOKED

Sunday 19th May




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!!
