This is a really fun course for beginners to create your own special child's toy. We will be exploring ways of making soft toys and puppets, both by using both wet and dry methods of felt making. You will be shown ways of making birds and animals ,and of ways of sculpting them using needle felting.
I will be covering a range of ideas and techniques for making a variety of soft toys in time for Christmas. Have fun creating your own soft toy, be it a monster ,or as cute and cuddly as you like, the choice is yours.
I am showing a variety of items which we have made on similar courses run during the rest of the year, using these techniques.

Felt is one of the earliest fabrics to be made, occurring throughout the world, and used extensively for everything from hats to tents. It is simple and therapeutic to make, using easily obtainable equipment and materials, and offers the possibility of fantastic results.
If you are visiting the Forest Of Dean on holiday, or arranging a fun and creative day out, I can tailor courses to suit you, whether you would like to produce something for your home, or to wear, or maybe as a special present for a wedding, baby shower, or anniversary, give me a ring.
I run these regular courses at my workshop, for up to 4 people, on the dates shown, and other dates by arrangement. I can also run any of them for up to 12 people at other venues.
