Felt Art Quirky Workshop at Greystoke

Details

Marian will bring a variety of coloured merino wools, dyed silks, threads and other fibres used to create a richly textured wool picture. You will learn how to lay out the fibres, blend colours, create shapes and then use the wet felting technique which involves warm soapy water, and some rockin’ and rollin’. You can choose between a beach scene or a floral scene, and you may wish to bring a photo to work from for inspiration. There will be some shells and sea glass which you could include either by stitching or adding into the wool layers. A machine embroidery demonstration will be available on request (if there is time) but your piece will need to be embroidered at home on your own machine when your felt is dry.

Greystoke Craft Garden (formerly Greystoke Cycle Cafe Tea Garden) is situated just 300yd north of the village green on the edge of the lovely village of Greystoke. The village nestles happily on the fringes of the Lake District National Park, 5 miles west of Penrith and the Eden Valley and 5 miles north of Ullswater. We have only limited parking and ask workshops attendees to enjoy the 300yd flat walking from the free village car park, alongside the racehorses and past the Castle walls. We will send maps etc on booking confirmation. We have 2 parking spaces reserved for those unable to walk this distance, please let us know. Drop off of students or materials is fine.
