2017 Workshop Schedule


Introduction to Wet Felting
April 15th, 10am to 1.30pm, £45
A brilliant introduction to wet felting for beginners and a great opportunity to refresh your memory if you haven't felted for a while. Using wonderfully soft and colourful Merino fibre with a range of embellishments to choose from, you will have the chance to experiment with a number of different techniques to create both flat and 3d items.

Flower Corsage
April 29th, 10am to 1.30pm, £45
Using wet felting techniques, with a layered resist, you will create a multi-layered felt flower brooch in any colour combination you wish - a great way to dress up your favourite hat, bag, shawl or jacket. We will be using wonderfully soft and colourful Merino fibre with a range of embellishments to choose from, creating a totally unique petalled flower brooch.

Introduction to Needle Felting
May 6th, 10am to 1.30pm, £45
I will show you the techniques needed to create a flat piece (e.g. a small picture) and a 3d piece (e.g. a pendant bead) using needle felting techniques. We will cover the different sizes and gauges of needles and the projects that each needle is best suited to. Primarily working with Merino fibre, we will also look at using different fibres and embellishments to add both colour and texture to your needle felting. There will be a range of samples on hand to demonstrate techniques and the use of embellishments plus a range of embellishments to experiment with. There is plenty of time to ask questions and explore adapting techniques to your preferred way of working while you are creating your felt picture and pendant bead.

Felt Painting - two part workshop
Discover how to 'paint' with loose wool fibre to create felt pictures. You are welcome to bring along an original photograph, sketch or design to inspire your felt painting. However, if you don't have anything to hand you will find plenty of inspiration around the studio.

Felt Painting, Part I - Design and Wet Felting
September 23rd, 10am to 1.30pm, £45
In the first of this two part workshop, you will create the basis of your felted picture using wet felting techniques. I can help to guide you on translating your image into a design for felting paying particular attention to how you can bring colour and texture to your picture. We will then explore a range of embellishment materials with samples to demonstrate the effect they will give to your finished picture.I will cover the wet felting and fulling techniques you can use, with emphasis on how you can manipulate each stage of the process to achieve the effect you wish, with samples to illustrate each step. We will then move on to a demonstration of carding technique, focussing on blending colours before you get your hands on the fibre and start your layout for wet felting.

Felt Painting, Part II - Needle Felting and Stitch
September 30th, 10am to 1.30pm, £45
In the second part of this workshop we will explore techniques to embellish your wet felted piece.Using needle felting and stitch to add additional colour and texture, this is when your picture will really come to life. I can help you assess your piece to choose areas to embellish and accentuate and decide on the details you may wish to add. We will then explore a range of embellishment materials with samples to demonstrate the effect they will give to your finished picture. I will then cover the needle felting and stitch techniques you can use, with samples to illustrate each step before you get your hands on the fibre and threads to begin embellishing.
