Learn a new craft, be creative, have fun........
For 2017 the Saturday group workshops will be held at my home in West Ayton near Scarborough, North Yorkshire. West Ayton is 4 miles outside Scarborough on the Pickering Road. For those of you who have been to my workshops at Hutton Buscel, I live in the next village 2 minutes away and am very easy to find.After taking a year off I am really looking forward to meeting up with other felt makers and experimenting with you. I have a huge selection of my experiments and samples to share with you and hopefully get your creative juices flowing!
There are just 4 places available on each date to ensure you receive personal attention in a warm and welcoming space. The workshops are relaxed and informal, each one one planned to give you the skills in a new technique. The idea being that you can acquire the skills you need to design and plan your own work in the future knowing which technique to employ to achieve the desired result.
We start at 10am and finish at 4pm. I provide most equipment and all materials required on the day, I provide refreshments, biscuits and cake but you will need to bring a packed lunch with you. You may prefer to bring your own sharp scissors, notebook & pen and a hand towel. I have a wide selection of both natural & dyed wool, silks, fancy yarns etc for you to use.
If there is availability you can secure your place with a deposit of £25 by clicking the "Book Now" button, the button only appears if there is availability. The balancing payment is due one month before the workshop, I will email you as a reminder with details of how to pay.If the workshop you are interested in is fully booked please get in touch by email and I will add you to the waiting list, there is often late availability due to changes in people's plans.
If you have already booked a place I will email you about one week before the workshop with a reminder of details of what to bring and how to find me.This year I have planned workshops suitable for beginners and improvers and some for felt makers with more previous experience.
