Wet felt making is a simple process (once you know how) made up of a series of repetitive actions. Many people find it relaxing and some a stress buster. But, elements of felt making are quite vigorous and very hands on. If you have arthritis in your hands you may find parts of the process challenging. That being said it is not stopped anybody before and Heather is very happy to help you with vigorous parts of the process. Allergies to cats or indeed wool? Please note Heather has three cats (they will be elsewhere in the house during the workshops). Antihistamines are available but her workshops may not be for you.

BYOB Ultimate Pottery Experience

Great experience!! From beginning to end, get to make your own clay pot and paint it, as well as pick something already made to paint! - very relaxing, friendly atmosphere. The teacher is lovely, chatty, helpful and welcoming! We were running a bit late so emailed beforehand to which we got a quick reply saying it was fine! Would definitely recommend to others! To do with a friend or a group of friends who want to try something new, or just have a relaxed evening! Thanks again

North London Pottery Workshop

Absolutely amazing, so glad I chose to do this with Sampada. She was really friendly and helpful. Small classes in a lovely studio overlooking the canal. 3 hours is the perfect amount of time, any less would have been way to rushed. Can make mugs/plates/bowls/models or whatever you want. Thanks so much!
