When the days are chillier, why not join this fun half day workshop? You will learn how to make a pair of hand felted wool wrist warmers or a pair of fingerless gloves to keep you warm this winter. 


Choosing colours of your choice, you will learn how to work with a resist pattern, lay out the wool fibres and fuse them together with just soap, water and elbow grease. You can use a selection of  fibres, yarns and fabrics to add further surface decoration to your felt to personalise your gloves with your own unique design.


A fun and practical workshop to make a functional and wearable piece of art work - a gift for a loved one or for you to keep!


Your tutor will be Emma Jackson, a felt maker with over twenty five+years experience teaching, designing & making felt for her award winning textiles company, Silversoles. The workshop will take place in her home studio in South Birmingham with a small group. Please note: the studio is situated at the bottom of a garden with one step up to access the building.


The workshop starts at 10am and runs until 2/2:30pm, (please arrive at 9:45 for a 10am start). Please get in touch if you would like further information. We aim to finish at 2pm but have a half hour built in to allow for additional time in case you need it to complete your project.

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 .
