What you will do

3 hour workshop

Daytime

The gate way to all things 3D in the wet felting world, using a variation on the method for 2D wet felting Heather will guide you through the layering techniques to make a small seam free vessel using a resist. Once you've learnt this you can make slippers, bags, cat caves, hats, hot water bottle covers, lamp shades, purse, the list goes on ...

With a maximum of four participants, these three hour workshops are designed to provide everybody with plenty of time for one on one attention. Heather always aims for sessions to be flexible to individual participants needs. Tabletop Workshops, the teaching arm of Purr & Wag It runs out of Heather’s Camberwell home. There will be plenty of home made cake, teas and/or coffee to keep you going.

Wet felt making is a simple process (once you know how) made up of a series of repetitive actions. Many people find it relaxing and some a stress buster. But, elements of felt making are quite vigorous and very hands on. If you have arthritis in your hands you may find parts of the process challenging. That being said it’s not stopped anybody before and Heather is very happy to help you with vigorous parts of the process.

Allergies to cats or indeed wool? Please note Heather has three cats (they’ll be elsewhere in the house during the workshops). Antihistamines are available but her workshops may not be for you.

I loved this course - working with felt is amazing, the colours are beautiful and the end results were much better than I expected. I am not particularly artistic but I produced something I really liked. Heather was very clear and patient and the atmosphere was relaxed and very calming. The location was also great. I now know exactly what to do if I wanted to do felting on my own.

A really interesting and enjoyable course over two evenings. Heather made everything very clear and easy, provided great materials and ensured we all made something we were pleased with. I had never felted anything before but would now like to do more and feel quite confident about starting on my own. I'd also like to do another course with Heather. Highly recommended

A really fantastic workshop! Incredibly insightful and taught in a way that made it relaxing and enjoyable. I took so much away from the experience, not only my lovely felted pieces but also the skills and knowledge to continue making at home. There was an abundance of beautifully coloured felts to work with and no short supply of tea and biscuits either. I couldn't have enjoyed myself more and left feeling very inspired.

Having spent a very pleasant afternoon with three other women, learning to wet-felt with Heather. What a lovely, lovely way to spend the day - learning, nattering, practising, nattering, eating, practising, nattering... so therapeutic... just how women have bonded for centuries. Heather is so welcoming, fun, caring and knowledgeable - what a pleasure to be in the company of someone who clearly loves what they do, as much as teaching it to others. I've always wanted to take up this art form, but it's not until you get up close and personal with it, that you appreciate exactly how much time, effort and skill goes into each and every piece. Thank you Heather for everything that you taught me. My friends and family are well impressed with my finished product. Would highly recommend your courses to everyone. Inspirational.

So impressed with this introduction into 3D wet felting. Didn’t think I would come away with a pot on the same day so was super impressed. Lovey tutor, very calm and patient with us. Explained everything really well. Simply love my pot and now love wet felting. Would highly recommend this class. Oh and the cakes and tea were fantastic. Super relaxing afternoon.
