As well as the workshops listed here, I can run workshops for small groups at home in Shropshire or I could come to you.
I run workshops in 2D and 3D felt making, natural dyeing and needle felting. I have taught all age groups including in schools. If you would like me to run a workshop for you and a group of your friends or your class, please contact me here.

Fast Felt-Making Taster for absolute beginners
Two, hour-long community workshops as part of the Secret Severn Art Trail Weekend: 1:30-2:30 or 2:30-3:30.
If you've ever wondered how to make felt, how to make the fluff stick together and how to decorate a piece without the 'bits' falling off, then come along. This fun workshop will teach you to make a simple piece of flat felt with an abstract design.
Each hour-long workshop is offered at a special price of £5, and there are six places per hour. This is offered as part of the Secret Severn Artist's Group commitment to our local community.
