Relax, unwind and create… In this relaxed workshop you will be taught the wet felting method to create your own felt poppy landscape, as pictured. It’s perfect for beginners! Your poppy picture will turn out a little different to the one pictured as the process is such that every piece is unique and impossible to recreate exactly the same.

On the wet felt workshop you will be given step by step instructions. At the end of the day you will take home your felted artwork to dry somewhere naturally.  Once dry you can then frame it as it is –  or you may wish to embellish it further at home with needle felting,  hand sewing, embroidery, sew some beads on etc!

On the wet felt workshop

You will learn the wet felting technique, this involves laying out the dry loose merino wool to create your felt landscape. At the end we add warm soapy water and friction to make it turn into a solid piece of felt. I still find it magical today and love this process. If you struggle with the final part of the process (rolling the wool to get it to matt together) I will be on hand to help you every step of the way – so just let me know you need help.

The wet felt workshop will be between 5- 6 hours long and includes:

  • All equipment
  • Merino wool
  • Refreshments, snacks and lunch

You will need to bring:

  • A small towel (to take your artwork home in)
  • comfortable shoes – you may wish to work standing up (your choice)
  • layers of clothing you can take off / put on so you are a comfortable temperature

* The wet felt workshop takes place at Ewe Time Holiday Barn– in a lovely spacious converted barn. You will have our own toilets to use on the day and access to a shared kitchen for making tea and coffee when ever you wish to have one.

Extra Info:-
* There is a max of 8 people attending the workshop plus Janine.
* There is an option to stay over at the holiday barn for one or two nights
