In our third felting workshop we will provide you with the skills necessary to create a bowl, vase or plant pot like the ones pictured.

You will learn to use a resist to create a three dimensional free standing item. The vase and plant pot cover will be supplied with a waterproof liner for flowers or a plant. You can try out different materials to make it more interesting like silks, yarn or scrim.

Places are strictly limited to six people and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis but should demand exceed supply we will place names on a waiting list and run another workshop later in the year.

At the end of the workshop, you will have your own felted receptacle to take home!  Book a place on this and the felted fairylight workshop in April together and save £10.

Susan Thomson in her own words:

“I retired from a long career in Education in 2012 and was inspired, after a visit to a local artist’s gallery, to take up this form of textile painting and creating as a hobby. I spent a few years learning the craft at workshops and attending Master Classes in Northern Scotland.

With lots of experimenting using various silks and wool fibres, I have developed my own unique style in the pieces I create. I enjoy travelling round Scotland where I get much of the inspiration for my pictures, with a little artistic license of course!

I like nothing better than creating scarves using all kinds of silks, lace and finest merino wool. I also make smaller gifts.

I share my enthusiasm for this textile craft by running workshops by request from various interested groups. I also tailor workshops to suit individuals in my peaceful Garden Studio.

And I am delighted to have the opportunity to run larger scale workshops through my involvement with Art & Craft Collective.”

Workshop Attendance Dos and Don’ts

All materials are provided.

Please wear old ‘working’ clothes that you don’t mind being stained with dye, a towel and perhaps an apron.

Please bring a plastic bag to transport your creation home as it may be damp when you finish.

You will also take home a booklet which reminds you of the processes you use.
