Felt making evening classes

Evening classes start on Tuesday 13th September, 7 till 9pm in our studio at The Workshop, Inchmore.  I can take a maximum of 5 people, so booking is essential.  Email me at if you want to sign up for these classes.

This will be a six week structured course that covers all the main techniques of felt making - wet felting, nuno felting, needle felting, 3-D felting, cobweb felting and many different ways of creating pattern in felt.  At the end of the course students will have a good knowledge of how and why things work that they can apply in their own projects.  The aim is to get students making lots of samples that they can use as reference at a later date. 

If you prefer to just go straight into a project, why not come along for a one day or half day session?  These sessions are proving very popular.  Some people come on their own for one-to-one tuition.  Others come in groups of two or three for an enjoyable day out.  Phone me or send an email - it is just a question of asking for a particular date.  If I am free, I will fit you in.

The studio is equipped with tables that are electrically height adjustable - no sore backs in this sweatshop!   All materials and equipment are provided and I have a wide choice of colours and types of fibres.  There are 3 needle felting embellisher machines available and sinks at which to do the rinsing.

These are all photographs from classes that have been held over the summer.
