Let's make it on a Monday!
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.
Gadget case using batts Sept 14th
An alternative to using our usual tops we will make a mobile phone or small tablet case using natural coloured batts that we can decorate with dyed tops and decorative fibres.
Materials charge £5
Poppy/Flower Brooch October 26th
Create a multi layered poppy flower with a felted centre, embellished with stitch and beads if you wish and then attached to a brooch back ready to fasten on your lapel for the Remembrance month of November.
Materials charge £5.
Don't forget to still put your coins in the British Legion collection box even if you now have your own everlasting remembrance poppy.
Frosty Landscape Lantern Nov 27th
Make your own free standing Winter Landscape tea light shade to add to your Christmas decorations at home.
Materials charge £5

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.
