Needlefelting, with Mo Parker

13th October 2018

10:30am – 4.30pm


Would you like to learn how to needle felt?  Sign up for this Saturday workshop to make either the cute hare or fox.  You will learn how to compose your animal, how to attach limbs and add colour. You can also mount your chosen piece on to a wooden and felted base to make a lovely ornament. Everything you need to complete this project will be supplied and there will also be another small project (a brooch or bag charm) for you to make if time allows. Suitable for beginners or more experienced felters.

Cost: £39. All materials provided. Please bring a packed lunch.

Screen Printing Tea Towels, with Rob Toomer

27th October 2018

10:30am – 4.30pm


Print your own unique set of tea towels with a design and colour you’ve designed!  This workshop will introduce you to the basics of screen printing and teach you the skills you need to print on a variety of surfaces. We’ll start from the beginning, covering equipment and materials, how to prepare a screen with your design and finally, how to print it.  By the end of the day, you’ll have a range of prints on paper as well as your finished tea towels ready to use in the kitchen or given as gifts. The workshop will focus mainly on the screen printing process. Therefore, you may like to have the design you plan to print (or at least a rough draft) prepared in advance.  If you have any questions regarding this, please do get in touch.

Cost: £39. All materials provided. Please bring a packed lunch.
