Create a unique festive door wreath or table decorations with wool and sheep locks, which you will then embellish with a selection of seasonal decorative accessories to add you own personalise twist.  This sesonal decoration can be resued and updated each year, by adding new trimmings to refreshing and restyle to match your chosen festive theme.  We’ll round off the session with a festive glass of mulled wine & mince pie and raise a toast the season!


You can join this open session, alternatively why not book a fun day for a group of family &  friends or as a festive works outing and make a day of it with lunch included for an additional £5 per person.* 


During the workshop you will lean how to;

  • Prepare your fibres to create a great wreath base
  • Apply curly sheep locks to the base
  • Add seasonal trimmings 
  • Use barbed needle to dry felt / needle felt the fibres together.


Please be Aware:

Needle felting / Dry felting involved using very sharp barbed needles. Care needs to be taken when working with the needle to prevent injuries - This technique is physical and involves prolonged repetitive action using your hands, therefore this may not be suitable for anyone with a RSI, carpal tunnel syndrome or frozen shoulder.


* We also off a  shorter workshop option during which you wprk on pre-preared wreaths and focus on  add the locks and trimming decorations if this suits your groups needs & interests. Please contact me to discuss your preferred option.

"Just wanted to say a huge thank you for a lovely day at our Christmas wreath-making workshop. I had never done any kind of felting activity before but you explained and demonstrated each step so clearly and I really enjoyed the needle felting. It was a lovely environment to work in and the wool and locks were such lovely materials to work with."

A most enjoyable day! Emma’s studio was warm and welcoming and was a lovely space in which to work. Emma was an excellent tutor, explaining each stage of the feltmaking process clearly and answering any questions that arose along the way. She provided a fantastic array of materials and taught us techniques for using them to best advantage .
