This is perfect for a hen party, or a birthday celebration with a difference or just for a group of friends wanting a good excuse for a get together! If the weather is good some of these courses will be held in our new marquee.

10am to 4.30pm approx Cost £75 including all materials, a farmhouse lunch, afternoon cake and tea/coffee on tap. This will take place in the Watershed Marquee.  
 
Come along and learn the art of wet felting then design and make your own bag, hat, bowl or maybe a lap top/ipPad cover! 
 
Felt making is an ancient craft dating back thousands of years, yet the same techniques are still used today. Wool fibres are sprayed, pressed and rubbed with warm soapy water until they lock together to form a non woven textile which can be moulded into a myriad of creations, ranging from small three-dimensional objects to yurts and on to the thinnest of cobweb scarves. 
 
Handmade hats are Kris’s speciality. She use mainly Merino tops (processed fleece) which is fine, soft and available in a huge array of colours. The addition of different fibres such as silk, wool locks, organza and alpaca, either as an embellishment or blended, adds contrast and texture. 
Kris enjoys using vintage buttons and found objects to decorate her designs, and she also makes bags, slippers and a variety of other designs as shown in her gallery. www.krismarriottfeltmaker.co.uk 
 
Kris is a member of the International Felt Makers Association (I.F.A.)
