Textile Fair, Compton Verney

I’m very excited to be exhibiting at this prestigious event for the first time. I’ll have some new original textile pieces with me plus felted vessels, Nuno felted chiffon scarves and a range of smaller items all for sale.

New workshop venue for December 2022

Needle felting Christmas robins.

With Textile Artist Jacqui Smithson

Wednesday 7th December 2022

2.00 pm – 4.00 pm.

Wren Hall, School Lane, Wroxhall, Warwick, CV35 7NF

£25.00 per person

incudes all materials and seasonal refreshments.

Come and spend a creative couple of hours with textile artist Jacqui Smithson in the welcoming surroundings of Wren Hall. In this workshop Jacqui will be showing you how to make your very own sweet little robin with Merino wool fibres using the needle felting technique. Once you have made your robin you can choose either to wire him up as a tree decoration or attach him to a strong wire stick ready to pop in your favourite plant or as an adornment to your iced Christmas cake. (You should have time to make 2 or 3 during the session).

All materials will be provided which will include your felting sponge/brush, wool, and fibres, plus 3 needles. I will have extra needles and wool for purchase on the day if needed.

This workshop is suitable for beginners or those who have experience.

To book your place please contact Jacqui directly by email: Jacqui.a.smithson@gmail.com
