Felting Workshops

Felting Workshops
with Jacqui Smithson  at 11, Clarendon Road, Kenilworth
I will be holding the following felting classes over the next few weeks. If you are interested in attending one of these sessions, please let me know via email or telephone and I can book you a place. Full payment can be made in advance or on the day of the class. A £10 deposit is required to reserve your place on the course. This deposit is non-refundable although is transferrable.
Wet felting is great fun to do and you don’t need to be artistic to have a go. All you need is a little imagination. I can guide you with the rest.

Sunday 11th February. 10 am – 1.00 pm. Starter Felting. We will make a small panel of felt with a simple design using pre dyed Merino wool. This can be embellished when dry if you wish.
£30 per person
Wednesday 14th February: 10.30am – 2.30pm. Next stage / Advanced session.  Using the wet felting technique, we will be working on a larger scale 2D piece. Learn how to shape your wool and add texture to your felt work with threads and silks and more!
£40 per person
Tuesday 27th February: 10.00 am – 1.00 pm. Needle Felting. Using the dry felting technique, we will be moulding the wool to make a small 3D animal. A much more precise technique using a barbed needle and requiring patience and a pair of spectacles! £30 per person
Friday 9th March. 10.30 am – 3.00 pm. Felting a bag. Learn how to make a small bag using a relief to keep the shape of your wool. Using Merino wool, silks and more, your bag will be an individual accessory to be proud of.
£45 per person
Friday 20th April. 10.30 am – 2.00 pm. Flower Felting. Spring will be in the air, so it will certainly be time to make flowers. Learn how to mould the wool in to stems, leaves and petals to make a gorgeous 3D flower.
£40 per person.
All classes are inclusive of materials and light refreshments. For longer sessions, which run over lunch time, please bring your own lunch.
If you can’t make any of the sessions listed but have a group of 3 or more I can run a class at a time and day to suit you. If you are interested in doing an evening or weekend session this is also available with 3 or more people. I am happy to also run needle felting classes if required.
If you would like to send through some dates you may be available, we can book a session or if you need any further details on any of the classes please email me on jacqui.a.smithson@gmail.com or give me a call on 07958 516371.
