About this event

Felt Bowl Workshop

Join us for relaxing session learning how to make a hand felted bowl using wool fibres and the wet felting method. Located in our Craft Barn at Hanwell Wine Estate or outside you will spend time relaxing and enjoying time for you. Our exceptionally talented tutor Rachel Morley will guide you through the felting process, the handling of the wool fibres and use of a resist to create your own unique 3D bowl.

Not only beautiful to look at but your bowl will make the perfect piece to store your things in or a wonderful handcrafted gift made by you. Attendance numbers are kept small to enable the tutor to give you the one-on-one time and attention to explore your creativity, so by the end of your session, you will not only have learnt a new skill but have completed your handmade vessel.

About your Tutor Rachel Morley B.A Hons

Local Artist and Feltmaker Rachel creates unique felt items by hand using the wet felting method. The natural colours and shapes of the Scottish coastal landscape have inspired the Pebble range of Doorstops, Cubby Bowls, Cubbyholes and Pebble Pods. Rachel loves to experiment with wool fibres from British breeds of sheep to take advantage of their varying qualities. As a contrast, she enjoys the challenge of felting with a broad colour palette to create the colourful range of bowls. Rachel’s aim is to elevate felt craft to create innovative products for the interior, echoing organic forms of the coastal landscape. Her fine art background brings a very sculptural feel to her work which is tactile and evocative. Rachel has a Fine Art Degree and Level 2 and Level 3 Diplomas in Felt making. She is a member of The International Felt makers Association and of Design Nation. along side this she is also a supporter of the Campaign for Wool and member of the Rare Breeds Survival Trust.

To ensure the quality of your personal experience, group size will be limited to 6

(Please note: a minimum number of 4 bookings is required in order for the session to go ahead)
