Happy new year to you all! I hope you all had an enjoyable festive season.


So, now that the new year is upon us, I wonder if you are looking for something new in your life? Is this the year when you look at starting a new hobby for yourself? If so, then why not book for one of my Felt Picture Making Workshops that are shortly coming up?


You will learn how to create a beautiful picture of your own using merino wool at The Barn in Houlton, Rugby (CV23 0AB).

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 at The Barn in Houlton, Rugby (CV23 0AB).  This is beautiful brand new community centre with lots of space and light, right next to the lovely Tuning Fork café, perfect for lunch afterwards!


Workshops are suitable for beginners or those who already have some

experience of felting.


Cost: £49 - includes all merino wool, plus tea/coffee and homemade cake

Small groups ensure plenty of individual attention, 2-6 people per class


Why not book with a friend or get a group of your friends together?


‘What a truly enjoyable time was spent with Karen learning how to felt!  From beginning to end the tuition was excellent, interspersed with laughter and cups of tea.  Such a pleasing, tactile product to create!  New skills learnt, advice given for further enhancement of piece.  Time and money truly well spent!’  Gail, May 2017
