Make a cute felt pot in this London workshop

3 hours Class size 1 to 4     label £50

Looking for creative days out in London? Make a cute piece of DIY home decor in this craft workshop.

In this felting experience, you'll use a variation of the 2D wet felting technique to create a felt planter. Your teacher will show you how to use a resist, how to embellish your vessel/planter, and the vital layering and felting techniques to make and shape your work.

Learn a new textile art in an encouraging and calming atmosphere. All of the necessary materials and equipment will be provided for you, including a vast array of wool tops colours to choose from.

By the end of the class, you will have made your own seam-free container that has many uses! It could be a planter for your cacti, a pot for rings or loose change, maybe a key holder, or it's simply decorative.

Once you've mastered the art of using a resist you can make slippers, bags, cat caves, hats, hot water bottle covers, lampshades, purses, phone covers, and more.

If you want things to do in London for a team-building activity, birthday party, or hens do, this class is ideal.
