"Felting for Fun…"

Following the success of the first feltmaking workshop held at Dimbola I'm
really delighted to say that I've been invited back for some more days of
"Felting for Fun"...

I've arranged two 'Felt Jewellery' workshops, as they're proving to be really
popular and previous feltmaking experience isn't necessary
"FELT JEWELLERY" : Thursday 16th June & Thursday 7th July.
Creating felt flowers brooches & corsages - perfect for those summer weddings! Making felt beads & bangles using a variety of simple felting techniques, with lots of ideas for decoration using needle felting, beads & embroidery.

The workshops will run from 10am through to 4pm and be held in the Freshwater Gallery at Dimbola, a lovely spacious room that used to be Julia Margaret Cameron's dining room. So we can work in the knowledge that the likes of Tennyson, Darwin & Thackery once shared this historic room with us.

As with previous workshops all the materials and equipment are provided, you will just need to bring an apron and towel. The cost of the day is £35, which will include morning coffee, a light lunch with vegetarian options and delicious home-made cakes & tea in the afternoon. The hospitality at Dimbola is fantastic! I love the wonderful smell of baking that fills the house whenever I'm there - it makes it feel like a real home. And if the weather's good we can always sit outside and have lunch on the terrace, overlooking the Bay...
