Felt making classes

Last Monday evening saw the first of our felt making classes in the new studio.
This was a one-to-one session with a student who has come to me in the past.  He seemed to enjoy the bright and spacious workshop.

The project for the two hour evening session was to make a pair of baby booties for the baby that his granddaughter is expecting.  He decided to make the booties with white fleece, but they were decorated with a flag on the side of each - one was the Scottish Saltire, the other the Norwegian flag as his granddaughter is half Scottish and half Norwegian.

He was delighted with the results - now we have to hope that his granddaughter is equally delighted - and that they fit the baby!

The next scheduled workshop on offer is a two day class - Celtic Felt and Stitch - 14th & 15th May.  This will involve making felt that includes a Celtic design and then enhancing the design with stitching and needle felting.  I can only take 4 people for this, so booking is essential.  Visit the website for details.

I am always happy to offer classes at times to suit individuals.  There is a choice of 2 hour classes, full day, two day and evening classes and these can be one-to-one sessions or for small groups. Click here for details.  I take a maximum of 5 people at a time, ensuring that everyone gets individual attention and that we all have space to move around and access the various colours and types of fibres.  Email me at or telephone (01463 831567) to request a session or visit the website to see if there is a scheduled class that is suitable for you.

In the centre of the studio we have two large, very sturdy tables which have electrically operated height adjustment.  This means that at the press of a button we can change them from sitting height to standing height - and choose heights suitable for different people - so no back-ache!

Also available are Babylock Embellisher machines for fast needle felting and Bernina sewing machines for further decoration and enhancement. 

We keep a large stock of fibres and colours including things to add interest to your felt, such as Angelina fibres, silks and synthetics.  We also have a large stock of yarns that can be used for further decoration.
