Christmas Decoration Workshop - Hand felted baubles



Christmas decoration workshop

With Michele English

Saturday 3rd December 2011,
10:00 – 14:30

Get in the festive spirit! During this fun one day workshop you will design and create your own hand felted and embroidered Christmas decorations.

In this hands-on workshop, starting with beautiful merino wool fibres (straight from the sheep!) you will learn the ancient and traditional method of felt making.

You will then use your newly acquired skills to make a hand felted Christmas bauble and a Christmas Robin to adorn your tree or give as a beautiful handmade gift.

There will be a selection of buttons, beads, ribbons and machine embroidered fabric for you to use to embellish your decorations. If you have any special buttons of bits of fabric/lace etc which you would like to incorporate then bring them along and Michele will help you to use them in your design.

The only limit is your imagination! 

Christmas felted bauble kits will be available to purchase on the day so you can carry on your Christmas creativity at home or as a gift for a loved one.

Tea, Coffee and mince pies will be provided for breaks or after the workshop if you don't want to stop!
