Workshop Schedule through November up now!

Here's my latest workshop schedule. Please know I am very flexible and accommodating, so if you need a personal class or a different date I am happy to shuffle things around for you. JUst drop me a line and I'll see what I can do. xx

Workshops taking place in the Scenic Rim area of the Gold Coast Hinterland, QLD, Australia. Or feel free to fly me anywhere. I'll bring the supplies and know-how.

If you do not see a workshop date and time to suit you, please contact me to set up a custom date and time that does!

One-on-one workshops are great, as are mother-daughter days, etc.
A felting party is a great day out on this beautiful mountain, bring a couple of friends and if you're inclined, a bottle of wine, I have the rest!

All fine quality supplies and light refreshments included in prices.

Nuno Felting. Beginner class.
We will learn the technique of "Nuno" felting, which is bonding the fibre onto a pre-existing fabric, such as silk or cotton. We will make one piece of nuno, intended as a scarf, table runner, curtain panel etc.
Saturday October 6th

Mini Workshop, Felt Flowers. All Levels.
We will hand felt and sculpt various organically formed floral shapes and attached stems and leaves if desired. Both wet and needle felting techniques will be used and discussed.
Saturday 13th October

Felt Hats. Intermediate class.
We will each make a unique, comforting and durable wool hat in various styles to suit a range of different heads and personalities. Get as creative as you wish, or make a solid classic such as a bowler or cloche. We will use a resist and hat blocks to sculpt. The hat you make does not need to be for yourself.**Just in time for wearing to your Melbourne cup function!** 
Saturday 3rd November

Resist Felting, Making a Bag/Vessel. Intermediate class.
You don't have to have felted before to master this technique so do not be perturbed by 'intermediate', this is just a more physically intensive process than a beginner class.
We will make a piece of 3d felt using the resist method, which can be sculpted into various bag or vessel styles.
Saturday 17th November
