Felt Picture

Making Retreat


3 Days of Creative Indulgence


This Felt Picture Making Retreat is tailored to the experience of the individual, so it is suitable for the novice and experienced alike. All you will need to bring is an Inspirational image and I will teach you how to create your Picture using the techniques of wet felting, pre-felting, needle felting, with specific guidance to manipulating the fibres to get the desired effects, using beautiful varieties of coloured Merino wool. 


After the wet felting process of building the body of the picture we will be working with a variety of fine detailing techniques using dry felting & needle felting skills to achieve more definition in your picture.

Limited to 8 people maximum, so everyone gets individual attention and tuition. I will also have an assistant with me to help support you.
