Create a beautiful piece of textile art in this felting class for beginners using your own reference photo for inspiration.

Guided by your experienced teacher, you'll be shown how to lay out fibres to make a flat piece of felt as well as using a technique called carding to blend colours. Once you've laid out the fibres to form the structure of your piece, you'll be shown how to manipulate the fibres to create an image from your reference materials.

Lastly, you'll learn the wet felting techniques to transform all the loose fibres into a piece of cloth. You'll finish off your piece of textile art so that it's ready to frame, hang directly on your wall or gift to a loved one.

A lovely activity if you're looking for hen do ideas, birthday party options or if you're searching for a creative team building activity. Get your group together and learn to felt.

By the end of the workshop, you'll have mastered the basics of 2D wet felting and you'll have made your own unique work of art!

All great. A wonderful way to spend a day. There was a generous supply of materials used for the class. A small intimate class with one on one attention. Perfect. I will definitely return for a more advanced tutorial. After viewing tutorials on line with no success this is the way to go. Thank you to Purr and Wag for a great day and delicious chocolate torte to end. Fritz.

This class was excellent and surpassed all of my expectations. Neither myself or my mum had ever done any felting before and we aren’t particularly artistically inclined. Heather was an excellent teacher and even made cake for us! She talked us through the process of creating the felt as we went, and provided us with everything we needed and every colour of felt under the sun. We were both able to produce a piece of felt that we were happy with thanks to heathers tuition. and now have the building blocks to be able to create more. We may book on to the course again, and we would recommend the course to anyone!

Heather was a great teacher and even made cake for the class! Wet Felt Making was lots of fun. None of us (6) had ever done it before and we were shocked what we could produce and take home after 3hours. Would definitely recommend!
