Family Felt Picture Workshop


The Beth Chatto Gardens, Clacton Rd, Elmstead, Colchester CO7 7DB

Tuesday 20th February 2024 (10.00am – 3.30pm)

“This Workshop is set up for an adult and child to experience together the exciting world of felt making. It could be mum, dad, an auntie, grandparent or friend who accompanies a child to each learn how to make a wet felt picture from vibrantly coloured wool tops. You could take inspiration from the Beth Chatto garden or from a picture of a favourite place.

You will work side by side to learn how to handle the fleece and how to manipulate the fibres, by rubbing and rolling, allowing the fibres to fuse together creating your felt picture.

The Workshop is suitable for children aged 8 and above with a one-to-one accompanying adult. Book two places, one for yourself and one for your child. Total cost of £30 which includes felting materials for you both.

All materials are supplied but please bring an apron to keep your clothes clean and an image you may wish to work from.
