Join us for a Christmas themed needle felt workshop and create your own festive robin or penguin.

During this workshop you will be finding out about, and using native hand-dyed wool, and the different techniques of felt-making.

We will be needle-felting using barbed needles, native wool and the core wool method.

You can bring in photos to work from, or browse through the resources available.

This workshop is suitable for all abilities, including beginners. Emma will guide you through the techniques and you will be able to take home your completed bird at the end of the workshop.

Review = I’ve never tried any kind of felting before – a complete beginner in every sense of the word. The workshop was brilliant, so much choice of materials in incredible colours, the day was extremely well thought out, accommodating beginners like me, yet providing a setting where more experienced felters could also get the most from it. Emma managed to find that perfect balance of offering tuition, guidance and help, or letting us guide ourselves when we needed/wanted to. It was a very relaxing and creative day, fab venue and a nice group of people; allowing everyone to have some 1-1 time with Emma as well. I loved the workshop and was so proud of what I managed to achieve with my day, definitely worth it and would highly recommend Emma as a teacher and artist.” Martine Finlay 

“Needle felting yesterday with Ems (Emma Bevan) was a great workshop and might try my own stuff now – on wet or winter days! VERY lucky to have Denmark Farm Conservation Centre just 10mins down the road – great place to meet like minded people, study or craft all day in a peaceful location.” Shelagh Yeomans
