Course overview

For those who have at least a little experience with wet felting and/or needle felting, this course provides an opportunity to explore several different methods, creating both 2D and 3D pieces.

Each week we will work with a different felting process and create something new.

Sessions will include:

- Felting with embellishments

- 3D felt animals

- 2D felt landscapes and/or still life

- Felt dolls/puppets/fairies

- Making a 3D felt vessel

Within each session, you will have the opportunity to explore both wet felting and needle felting techniques, discovering the benefits of each and deciding on your preferred methods.

Whilst the learning of techniques will be predominantly tutor led, you will be encouraged during each session, to explore your own creative style and intuitively work with the wool, in your chosen colours, to decide which approach will work best for your piece. Your tutor will provide all the support you need to create your very own unique felted items to take home. All resources provided.
