NEW DATES FOR 2018-19
I offer a one or two-day workshop creating Felted Landscapes and will take you through the creative steps and the wet felting techniques I use when creating my own artwork.
Each participant works from their chosen starting point such as a photograph, sketch, magazine tear, etc to inspire their piece. Gradually you will develop your artwork applying wool fibres, silk threads, and fabrics’ inserts, as you would paint. At the end of the course, you can expect to take away with you a finished felted piece, which can also be further embellished if you so wish to.
All the necessary materials and equipment required are provided, along with lots of photos and magazines for inspiration. Workshop groups tend to be no larger than 10 participants maximum, so I can provide 1:1 guidance throughout the day.
You do not need any previous experience of felting, just a desire to delve into your creative inner self (and we all have one, just need a nudge to find it sometimes!). Come and join me if you can.

“Hi Valerie, just wanted to say that I thoroughly enjoyed your Expressive Landscapes workshop. You are very generous in sharing your knowledge and insights, and in making the days so enjoyable to attend. I came away with ideas of how to provide subtle colours and textures that I’m looking forward to exploring further.
I hope you can run that print-making session too at some stage in the future!
Thank you x” Val
“I felt privileged to attend a workshop run by Valerie. She is a natural teacher and effortlessly shares her skills, knowledge and trade secrets in the art of feltmaking. A lovely relaxed creative afternoon. Valerie also makes yummy Lemon Drizzle cake!” Lucy
