Festive Felted Robins

Tutor: Sue Pearl

Create a 3D needle-felted robin for Christmas. These birds are brimming with character and can be used to decorate your tree or home during the festive season. Your robin will be 3”-4” tall, made from fine Scandinavian wool and can be finished off with a jaunty ribbon around the neck. Dry felting - or needle felting – is a simple process in which you create 3D shapes using wool and a barbed needle (none of that messy wet wool business!). The tutor, Sue Pearl, is the author of Making Felted Friends.

Devoré Velvet Scarves
Saturday 18th November 2017 to
Sunday 19th November 2017
9.45am - 4.30pm
Tutor: Mary Day

£160
Use devoré to create beautiful patterns in the pile of silk velvet and produce a stunning scarf. In devoré (also called burnout), the pile of the velvet is selectively removed to create a pattern; a technique reminiscent of the opulent art deco era. When devoré paste is applied, cured and activated, the beautiful silk backing of the velvet is revealed in a unique pattern designed by you. Your scarf can then be enhanced with dyes applied by hand.
