following the ancient art of wet felting using just wool, soap and water
The Wet Felting Experience
I run felt making workshops in schools, craft fairs and local events. My very first workshop at The Brighton Mini Maker Faire was to 'Wrap a Brighton Rock - using just wool, soap and water' I passed on my felting knowledge to 140 enthralled participants in one day from toddlers to seniors alike! Not only do you take your piece of art home, but you take with you a new skill too!
Wet felting is ideal for school projects, after school clubs, corporate team building and community events. Felting together results in creating a unique wall hanging for display or an individual mini work of art!
Here are some of my varied themes the most popular being a mini animal art. Also felted rocks, Christmas baubles, butterfly and flower hair accessories, ready to wear unicorn horns and felted geodes (sushi)
My felt making workshops have included drop in sessions at The Brighton Mini Maker Faire, The Fairy Tale Fair, Herstmonceux Medieval Festival, The Floral Fringe Fair, Wilderness Wood, Weald and Downland Museum, Bentley Wood fair, Firle Vintage, Sussex Prairie Garden
