Pictures, Covers, Scarves, and Cushions.
I run this one day regularly, covering most of the basic techniques used in wet felting. It’s a good starting point for anyone wanting to learn the basics, or just have a really good day out! At the end of the day, you will come away with a finished piece of felt, and the confidence to carry on to make lots more!
In the morning we’ll make samples of ways to develop patterns, experiment with mixing colours and making and using pre-felts, using layering to form pockets and flaps, or incorporating fabric to make fine nuno fabrics. These are felts which incorporate fine silks or other fabrics to create wonderfully lightweight, strong warm fabrics suitable for scarves, clothing, or lampshades. They can be sheer, or wonderfully textured, with contrasts between the wool which shrinks, and the fabric which does not.
After lunch you’ll be shown how to translate your ideas from an image or source of your own choice into a design to make a piece of felt for either a picture, scarf, cushion , book, or ipad cover.

“Attended a workshop on 29th September. I had a most wonderful day, thank you so much Christine. Very satisfying working with such lovely colourful wools. We all made our own items and Christine was very patient and encouraging all through. Thank you too Jem who made us a fabulous lunch.”
“This one-day course was most enjoyable. Lots of beautiful colours and an opportunity to make your ideas be expressed in felt.
I have never made any felt before and I came away with a piece I felt proud of. Creative, relaxing and full of surprises!
The studio and house are set in a beautiful garden with stunning views. The lunch was delicious and it was good to be creative with others.”
