Needle feting workshops

These workshops will take place in North London (N10), Saturday, 20th and 27th October from 10:30am – 5pm.

Felting is such a relaxing (and not expensive as you don’t need any costly essential equipment) and fun group activity as it enables just about anyone to take part in a creative session and go home with something beautiful made with their own hands. There is no particular artistic ability required for success, conversation and laughter is part of the fun!
I’ll teach various basic techniques (you’ll learn about wool, needles, how to form and join shapes, use wire ) and help making a small (not miniature!) creature of your choice.

The cost is £80 for one day. All materials for the day + a kit with felting needles/needle protection tube/pad to take home, coffee/tea + snacks and homemade cake included. Please feel free to bring your own packed lunch as we’ll have a short break.

Book your space with a friend and you will get a £5 discount each, just let me know who you’re coming with.

You can book your place: 20th  SOLD OUT,  27th

 

 

 

Felting fun

I’ve bought quite a lot of wool last year in hope to embrace the art of felting a bit more seriously. The hope is still there. The wool too. So far I only made this little attempt (a few months ago…) to try my felting needles

And then recently I moved on to wet felting :

I also made flower brooches

A couple more of my flowers are displayed in my shop.

Definitely will play more with wool. I have quite a few Japanese magazines/books with lots of exciting woolly ideas to try out and then there are people like Fadeeva. Her creations are simply amazing. Actually, she was the one that made me wanna get some felting needles and try to learn to control them. Love her stuff! Also love HUT up. And kjoo.
For those who are interested I bought my merino tops from this great shop.

So that’s wool. In a mean time I’m back to what I’m feeling better at – making some more mohair bears… and rabbits. And…

Hope you’re enjoying your week! Will ketch up soon. x
