Whether you want to find new, creative ways to express yourself, are looking for a new hobby, or just like the idea of working with wool, this introduction to felting will be a great place to start.
Beginning with a few small projects on the theme of “hearts and flowers”, you will discover the basic principles of what felt is and how felting works. You will have the opportunity to make felt fabric and felt beads as well as having the chance to try out needle felting. This hands-on, practical workshop will give you a great starting point for developing your creativity with felt.
Take your finished projects home. All resources provided.
There are no formal assessments for this course. The tutor will give regular feedback to help you improve.
