With Elizabeth Swift

Elizabeth runs workshops throughout the year in her home in New Mills, Derbyshire.

Workshops run from 10 am until 3.30 pm on Tuesdays and Sundays and combine both techniques of wet felting and needle felting to produce a substantial piece of two dimensional work fit for framing.  A wealth of inspiration is provided on the day although participants are encouraged to bring some images that either inspire or mean something to them.

The cost of each session is £55 which includes hot drinks and homemade cakes (please bring your own lunch).

The aim of the workshop is to learn techniques and gain confidence in a relaxed, fun environment and to go home with a piece of work you are proud of.

Shorter workshops are also available in the afternoons on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays, from 1.30pm until 4pm to make felted bookmarks, hearts, cards or needle felted pictures. The cost for these sessions is £35. Hot drinks and homemade cakes are included.

All workshops are suitable for beginners and those with some experience.
