I’m back up and running and raring to go with a wonderful variety of felting workshops which I will be running from my new workspace in Kenilworth. I can offer 3D wet felting, making bowls or flowers, Nuno felting, using beautiful chiffon scarves, 2D wet felting, creating images plus beginners needle felting classes.


Felting workshops

March – June 2022


Felting larger vessels or bucket bags

Thursday 10th March, 10.00 am – 3.00 pm

£58.00 per person

Using a very similar technique to the beautiful bowl making, this class will be a little more advanced and will give you the chance to work on something larger using the wet felting technique. You will be shown how to layer your batts round a strong plastic resist and given step by step instructions on how to wet, shape and finish your vessel and form handles if you choose to make a bag.

*Please note some felting knowledge is required for this class.


Nuno Felting

Thursday 24th March and Friday 6th May, Time: 10.00 am – 3.00 pm

£58.00 per person

Learn how to make a beautiful scarf using the Nuno felting technique. You will be shown how to work fabulous Merino fibres, silks, and interesting threads through a silk chiffon scarf and by adding warm soapy water and a little elbow grease the fibres will begin to migrate through the chiffon and eventually felt. You will be sure to take home an accessory to be proud of in the colours and design of your choice.


Beautiful Bowls

Thursday 28th April and Thursday 19th May, Time: 10.00 am – 1.30 pm

£45.00 per person

A day Learn how to make a simply shaped bowl using the wet felting technique in the colours of your choice. In this class you will be working with woollen batts which are much coarser than fine Merino tops. Batts are perfect for 3D work such as bowls and are also excellent for use when needle felting. You will be shown how to layer your batts round a strong plastic resist and given step by step instructions on how to wet, shape and finish your bowl ready to take home.


Needle felting images

Thursday 5th May, Time: 10.00 am – 1.15 pm

£40.00 per person

Suitable for beginners or those who have experience. I will be teaching the technique of needle felting which is great fun to do and easy to learn.

In this session you will create a small panel of felt with a simple image using pre dyed Merino wool tops, woollen batts and other interesting fibres.

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


Wet felting simple images Starter/refresher.

Saturday 7th May, 10.00 am – 1.15 pm

£40.00 per person

Suitable for beginners or those who have experience. I will be teaching the technique of wet felting which is great fun to do.

In this session you will be guided from start to finish to create a small panel of felt using Merino wool tops and other interesting fibres.

Perhaps you would like to shape your wool into a cupcake, a Summery scene with sheep or something natural like vegetables or florals. The choice is yours on the day.

A great class to enjoy with family and friends and a perfect introduction to the joys of wet felting.


Making Mondays

Monday 9th May and Monday 13th June, 10.30am – 2.30 pm

£20.00 per person

A day to come and share the studio space and use of equipment with fellow textile lovers and felt makers. It may be time to start a new project or bring something that you are already working on. You may need some advice on how to finish it off or whether it needs embellishment. I will be on hand to share knowledge and answer questions on felting, stitching and other techniques and will also have fibres, wool, and needles that you can buy if needed.


Venue for all workshops: 96 Leamington Rd, Kenilworth, CV8 2AA

All materials are included for every workshop, but you will need to bring a large towel to cover your working area and a pair of rubber gloves for wet felting.

Refreshments will be provided. Please bring your own lunch if you are attending a full day workshop.
