Hello everyone, just sending you some details on this year's workshops and events planned so far...
We may have met already at workshops, or wool festivals, I hope you are still enjoying needle felting and making, or you may be planning to try felting for the first time, so here are a few dates for your diary, hope you can join me and we'll make something lovely with wool. You can see plenty of pictures and examples if you follow on the links below.
So far I've booked Saturday afternoons at Artwork Studios and Gallery in Northwich Cheshire, starting in May. I could fit in one or two week days if anyone can't make weekends, do let me know if this would suit you better.
I also travel further out to some really nice venues, and you can see those workshops on the website links below for availability/booking.

Using felting needles and wool fleece.
Repeatedly pushing the barbed needles into the wool makes the fibres tangle together and create solid 3 dimensional forms.
Learn how to model the wool into shapes, join them together and turn the wool fleece into your own charming sculpture.
