2017 Workshops

You may already have noticed I have listed some workshops for this year. As I said in my last newsletter, with working at wool shows and trying to find the time to visit our daughter at university, free weekends have become a scarcity. With this in mind all workshops this year will be mid week. My sincere apologies to those for whom this is a convenience but I really feel my sanity demands it!

This spring I wanted to focus on mainly British wool in the workshops, there’s so much more than Merino out there and British wool is the best, so come along and explore it with me.

British wool pots on Thursday 2nd March at Clifton Village Hall, Otley. We’ll make two small pots so an opportunity to try a couple of different wools, experience the texture, how the wool behaves. Cost is £50 including all materials.

British wool bags on Wednesday 22nd March at Clifton Village Hall, Otley. We’ll be keeping it simple for those new to feltmaking but for the more experienced we’ll be including interior and exterior pockets. The right wool is so much more hard wearing than the softer Merino. Cost is £50 including materials

Needle felted elephant on Monday 3rd April which’ll be held at Adelaide Walker in Addingham. In this workshop we’ll be using carded Bergschaf wool which comes in 5 natural shades or choose from the luscious dyed colours. Cost is £25 including materials.

British wool book cover on Thursday 27th April at Clifton Village Hall, Otley. Combining felt and stitch, no knowledge of embroidery is required a simple running stitch can be all it takes and it creates a lovely texture on the cover which can be reused for years.

British wool nuno scarf and flower on Wednesday 14th June at Clifton Village Hall, Otley. Combining wool and silk chiffon through the felting process to create a luxurious, yet lightweight, wool and silk scarf, perfect for the warmer weather.

All workshops can be booked direct or to pay by cheque please contact me.
