Workshops 2017

Calendar New Evening Classes This year I am trialing some delightfully relaxed Monday evening classes  to create small felt items. These evenings are designed for beginning felters or people who just want a lovely creative evening out. I am hoping to do it weekly if there is enough interest -end of Feb and March as a trial. They have been so successful that I will be doing another four week block again in May. We will be making different small things each week.   The cost will be $55 per evening including all materials and felting equipment. You just come along- no need to bring anything at all. Do bring a torch as we live on acreage! Bookings are essential. Evening Class Dates:
