I set-up my business as a self-employed artist/teacher in June 2010, since then I have taught people of all ages and abilities how to felt.
I teach the instant gratification of felting. The techniques I teach I have created myself so that they are achievable for anyone who comes to my workshops. I spend countless hours playing with wool and I create something at least 50 times before I teach it to people.
Most of my workshops are based near my home in Lincolnshire but I also travel to Cambridgeshire, Northamportonshire and Bristol to teach workshops. Currently all of my classes are single stand alone workshops and are aimed at beginners. I teach a lot of techniques in my workshops and therefore some people attend them more than once.
My felting workshops are offered monthly at Riverside Beads in Market Deeping and Stamford Arts Centre. I also do a couple workshops regularly at Fabric Plus Ltd. in Bristol and Peterborough Museum.
I offer private workshops for you and your friends/WI/craft group/party for £100 for a half day session which is 2-2.5 hours long. This includes all instruction and materials for up to 10 people. Mileage fee may be added if you are more than 25 miles from me. Full day workshops are £200 for up to 10 people. I am able to teach 1-50 students at one time depending on the theme. The largest class that I have taught so far was 65 people at a local WI they made needle felted owls. Please contact me for prices about classes for more than 10 people.
Private Classes are available at my home studio in Aslackby, South Lincolnshire for one to four people. Prices for half day are £30 per person and is for 2-2.5hour workshop. Full day is £50 per person and is for a 4-5 hour workshop (bring your own lunch). Come alone or with a friend and create whatever you would like. All materials and instruction included in price. Yes I’m happy for it just to be one on one and it’s still £30 per person.
If you want to do a private workshop for more than 4 people, I am able to rent a room at Wake House in Bourne. Prices will be similar per person depending on the amount of attendees.
