Workshops

Let's make it on a Monday!

 

2020 Workshops

at Preston under Scar near Leyburn

in beautiful Wensleydale

Our felt making workshops are held in Preston under Scar Village Hall, DL8 4AJ.  

 

Our workshops will start at 10am so its good to come a little earlier to have a cuppa, start to relax and meet your fellow felters.  We generally finish around 3.30pm.  

All  equipment and materials are provided. A small materials charge will apply depending on what we are making and this is included with each workshop listing. The cost for the day is £45 per person and includes tea/coffee and a simple lunch.

I acquired the skills to make felt from the wonderful, world-renowned feltmaker Sheila Smith. I am pleased to say Sheila is now the president of the International Feltmakers Association and my friend.  She has passed on the feltmaking bug to so many people, me included, and I am passing it on further.  

The moment when a pile of fluff turns into a cohesive piece of solid felt is still a thrill for me.

If you feel you would like to experience that eureka moment, that thrill, then please contact me for details of our planned workshops.

If you would like a workshop to come to you then we can do that too.
