About this event

Join me to learn how to create a beautiful picture of your own using merino wool!

You will be taught how to lay down the merino wool fibres and build up the image before wet felting it. You will leave with your own felt picture which you can further enhance at home with stitching if you wish.

Felt picture making workshops are run throughout the year at The Barn in Houlton, Rugby (CV23 1AL), between Hilmorton & Crick, close to Junction 18 of the M1. This is beautiful community centre with lots of space and light, right next to the lovely Tuning Fork café, perfect for lunch before! There is plenty of free parking.

Workshops are suitable for beginners or those who already have some experience of felting.

Cost: £58 - includes all merino wool, plus tea/coffee and homemade cake

Small groups ensure plenty of individual attention (max 6 people per class). Why not book with a friend or get a group of your friends together? 

Here's what some previous participants have said:

'This workshop was bought for me as a birthday present and postponed because of lockdowns so we finally enjoyed it yesterday! The venue in Rugby is easy to find and in a beautiful barn with lots of natural light and good facilities. Karen is enthusiastic and great at encouraging and supporting creativity and the trying of new techniques. The materials provided enabled me to produce a felted landscape that I know I will enjoy adding to with machine and hand embroidery to complete a work that I will want to keep. (this is not always the case at the end of a workshop!). After so long without workshops, it was lovely to experience a well organised workshop offering good value with the opportunity to learn new skills in a small friendly group whose ages ranged from 10 to nearly 70. I can thoroughly recommend the experience.' Sue Sept 2021

'I have just participated in my third workshop - I just love felting, particularly with Karen. It's such a calm, friendly experience every time. Karen explains the process so well and knows just how to help if you need it. The Barn at Houlton is a lovely venue too - did I mention Karen also makes cake for attendees too?I would highly recommend these workshops... I know I'm gushing but I would also say don't stop at one workshop, with felting being such a dynamic process, there's always more to get out of attending.' Niki, April 2019

On the day, please bring with you an old medium sized towel and a plastic bag to take your damp towel home in.
