Needle Felting Workshop

Saturday 30 November 2019 from 10.00 am - 12.30 pm
Venue: Bridle House, 15 Turchil Road,Cawston, Rugby CV22 7FW
£30 per person including materials

Needle felting is a process using a barbed needle to mat the woollen fibres onto a piece of felt instead of using soapy water and rolling wool to create a piece of felt (as used in wet felting).  Once felting is completed you will be able to  hand or machine embroider on top to further enhance the design.  You may not have time to complete your design during the session but will be well on your way to creating a beautiful piece of art.  There will be a machine embroidery demonstration at the end of the session using dropped feed dogs.

You will need to bring:

  • any pictures that inspire you
  • Needles and embroidery threads ( just in case you need to/have time to embellish your design).

Cost: £30 per person including materials.  Refreshments provided.  Please telephone 07833353872 to book.  £10 deposit required per person (non refundable but transferable).

If this date is unsuitable please contact me to discuss other dates.

Wet Felting Workshop  

Saturday 16 November 2019                   
10.00 am – 12.30 pm
At The Bridle House, 15 Turchil Road, Cawston, Rugby  CV22 7FW
Cost: £30 per person including materials  
Maximum no 4
Tutor: Virginia Murphy
Please book in advance                  
 
Wet felting is a method of producing felt from wool and other animal fibres.  Warm soapy water is applied to layers of wool tops.  Repeated agitation and compression causes the fibre to hook together to create a single piece of fabric. Using a choice of colours you can create lovely pieces – either by actually creating as you go or by experimenting with colour.  Once you have your completed piece you can use it to make things (such as a glasses case – this is not part of the session)ordevelop it into a picture for framing.  
Please bring:  a wooden rolling pin ( a piece of doweling of same size would do), a large towel (to absorb water from your felt as you are working), pictures to inspire you.
For any further information please contact Virginia.
