In her workshops, Heather offers a full demonstration of blending wools, using other fibres, laying out the felt, designing templates (if appropriate) and, uniquely, fine finishing. She helps participants create their own designs, and encourages them to experiment with colour and texture.
Heather’s workshops are renowned for being intensive and energetic, and also fun. Recent participants have said,
“The most intensive workout I have done for a LONG time … ending up with a beautiful item of functional clothing and toned arms. A great workshop.”
"I love Heather's felting workshops! She puts you completely at ease and gently encourages you through a thorough felting demonstration to create amazing things."
“Heather is a wonderful teacher … can’t wait ‘til my next class.”
“Very professional and enjoyable. Friendly group, and I learnt so much which I can build on. Loved it!”
