Feltmaking Workshops

"Have wool, will travel"

I have been teaching feltmaking for over 13 years and really enjoy sharing techniques, hints and tips with my students.  I organise and deliver feltmaking workshops in my local area (Glastonbury, UK), but if you would like one elsewhere I am happy to travel.  I work with many different groups and organisations and can adapt to new venues and students.  Some of the groups I have felted with include: children, school groups from Year 4 – 11, embroidery guilds, art groups, youth organisations, WI’s, adult summer schools, colleges, environmental groups, historical events and public fun days.  I offer a variety of techniques from beginner to advanced.  I also give talks and demonstrations. 

If you are interested in a talk or workshop do get in touch with your needs.

Festive Mini Vessels

Sunday 29 November 2020  10 am – 4 pm      £60

St Edmunds Community Hall, Glastonbury BA6 8EW

Booking essential – book directly with me via email.  

This workshop is run with Covid-19 Secure arrangements in place.  I want to keep you all safe and will follow Government guidelines.

Join me for a bit of felting festive fun.  This workshop will focus on, but not be restricted to, making mini vessels.  You should be able to make at least 3 during the day which you can fill with sweets or goodies as presents or place them as decoration in your home.  Made with thin layers they glow beautifully with tea lights placed inside.

In my one day workshops you will learn new techniques, make beautiful felted items and have a day just for you in which to explore your creativity and work with colour and texture. Workshop prices include all materials and equipment – this includes a large range of wool and interesting fibres.  For workshops which teach specific techniques I provide post-workshop notes for you to take home to remind you of the processes you learn.

All you will need to bring is your own refreshments/lunch, two towels and a plastic bag or bowl to take your creations home.  

The venue is St Edmunds Community Hall, Glastonbury and each workshop runs from 10.00 am – 4.00pm.  

Full day workshops are not recommended for those under 14 years old.  Maximum class size is currently 5 to keep them Covid-19 Secure.

Feltmaking Kits

If you can’t make a workshop then my feltmaking kits will let you learn at home.

I have designed my feltmaking kits to enable everyone to try feltmaking .  They have all been carefully devised and tested to ensure that people new to feltmaking can understand what to do, know how to use the materials and finish with some lovely felted items.

My kits contain everything you need to get you felting: laminated instructions, plenty of gorgeous wool, natural soap flakes, bubblewrap and other essential items.

Felted Vessels with British Wool

Customer feedback

"The kit is superb. I am very wary of kits as they are usually disappointing and to be avoided. Yours is generous in its supply of required materials – plus the instructions are detailed and extensive. What a wonderful gift I was given. Thank you Jennie for making it so good."
