Places are limited to 8 people per workshop. Please book early to avoid disappointment.

Andrea Coleman Felting is available for parties and school visits. 

Andrea's varied programme of felt making classes cover all aspects of felting and felt making and include introductory courses aimed at the beginner where the basics of felt making, the processes and materials used are fully explained and demonstrated with plenty of hands-on practice.

All of Andrea's felt making workshops are very hands-on with much of the class time being spent actually using felting materials to create unique and beautiful pieces of art, jewellery and fashion garments.

Andrea will help you to understand and use felt in many creative projects and offers classes using beautiful Nuno felt. Nuno felt is produced by using a fine woven cloth, usually silk, and applying it to the wool fibres. As the wetted wool shrinks it takes the cloth with it, resulting in a crinkle effect. The name is derived from the Japanese word "nuno" meaning cloth.

Felt can also be moulded during the felt making process to create three dimensional shapes, forms and models such as hats, bags, jewellery, decorations and toys. More robust items such as slippers, gloves, belts and wrist warmers can be made from thicker felts and Andrea runs a number of felting classes that create fashionable, wearable and unique felt creations.
