Felt Jewellery Workshop

You will spend the day creating an array of felted jewellery using a selection of wonderful colours of merino fleece. Sarah will demonstrate a variety of techniques, which will enable you to create your own some beautiful pieces to take home. Whether it’s a felt necklace, earrings or rings you will learn how to manipulate the fibres to produce loops, cords and pockets.

All materials necessary for the day will be provided but if you have a special bead, button or stone that you wish to incorporate then do bring them along. During the day you will learn lots of tips to help you finish that special and unique piece.

Tutor: Sarah Waters

Sarah's life has always been intertwined with sheep and wool. From an early age she was picking tufts from fences and twisting them in to yarn. 

At the age of 13 Sarah started breeding Rare Breeds of sheep and learning to spin, weave and dye. There was a natural progression in to studying Agriculture and so ultimately running her own sheep farm was no surprise.

Sarah is a textile artist with a passion for felt making that originates from her love of sheep. Living in the New Forest her work reflects her desire to connect with nature and the importance of sustainability.
