New Classes for 2014!

Newsletter No.2

Welcome to 2014!  

Welcome to the New Year! I hope everyone has recovered from this most unusual weather over the last few weeks and that all your loved ones are safe and well.

I hope you are all ready to plunge into a wonderful year of feltmaking. If you haven't started yet, then I hope this is your year to have a go!

For all those new students that have enrolled over the last few months, it has been a real delight to welcome you to the studio! I look forward to seeing you again when you are ready for another adventure.

This is shaping up to be a very busy year for me, with a lot of work away interstate as well as some exciting school jobs. So lots more colourful woolly gorgeousness on the way!
I have listed quite a few dates below for classes I will be doing over the next couple of months before things get too busy!

If you would like to learn a feltmaking technique that is not listed, please do not hesitate to ask me and we will sort a date out for you. If you have a few friends and would like to come as a group, just let me know and we can find a day for you to come together.
I will be doing my first Felting Hen's Party in a couple of weeks - how exciting!

Whatever your creative endeavours for 2014 I hope you will find time to do some felting - the most magical of all textiles
With love

PLEASE NOTE: I only take 4 students at the time so classes fill very quickly. email:

Nuno Scarves

Felting onto silk or cotton can produce a beautiful featherweight felt known as NUNO.  Perfect for a more glamorous felt. ideal for wearing!


These happy monsters are such fun to make. You can make them as weird and as odd as you like! Perfect for a beginner or more experienced felter, these stitched characters stand about 40 - 45cm high although you could make them in any size.


Felt Flowers

Felt is a super medium for creating flowers. They are easy to wear with an outfit or to add to a handbag and I just love a whole bunch in a vase!  Further details can be added with cords and balls for centres and stamens.

Embroidering felt

There are so many amazing ways to embroider felt! This class will cover both hand and machine work. A perfect opportunity to study ways in which to bring a dull felt to life with stunning detail.
Suitable for the beginner. 

Collage Birds

Little collage felt birds cover a range of techniques that will enable you create some stunning felted friends.  You can make a whole flock for a wonderful display. Weighing in at no more than a few feathers, they make the ideal gift to post to friends and family!


Beginners Felt

Getting started on felting is such a wonderful journey!  During this class you will get confident handling wool and discovering all the gorgeous fabrics and fibres that you can add to create a beautiful textured panel. We will also cover making balls and cords.

Russian Dollies

Seamless felt looks so mystifying – unlock the secrets of its creation! It's the perfect technique if you would like to create a bag or figure or vessel. Suitable for the student who knows the basics of felt making. 


Vessels or bowls or vases in felt utilise the seamless technique. A wonderful way to create a unique three dimensional shape.without any stitching at all!
