With a maximum of four participants, these three hour workshops are designed to provide everybody with plenty of time for one on one attention. Heather always aims for sessions to be flexible to individual participants needs. Tabletop Workshops, the teaching arm of Purr & Wag It runs out of Heathers Camberwell home. here will be plenty of home made cake, teas and/or coffee to keep you going.
This workshop is for those of you who already know the basics of 2D wet felt making. Heather will guide you through the layering technique to make a seam free vessel, the gate way to all things 3D.
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.
If possible please arrive up to 15 minutes early to settle in with refreshments for a prompt workshop start.
A How-To sheet including stage photographs will be emailed to you at the end of the course but I can give you paper and a pencil if you like making notes on the day.

- Tabletop Workshops, the teaching arm of Purr & Wag It (PaW) was invented to provide You with hands on relaxed learning and me the opportunity and great enjoyment of facilitating others' creativity in the relaxed setting of my home studio in Camberwell. All my courses and workshops are fuelled with plenty of homemade cake, teas and coffee. What's PaW? Born out of a gift to my brother, it's my felted portrait/landscapes small business. Marrying my love of animals with my love for making and in particular pushing the boundaries of fine detail in wet felt making. I've been teaching people of all ages and with widely differing abilities for well over a decade in educational and community settings across Greater London and hold an enhanced DBS certificate for children and vulnerable adults. Showing off doesn't come naturally but amongst other praise past participants have said: ... We loved this course. Heather is a great teacher - informative, friendly and relaxed. And a great baker to boot (tea and cake was happily consumed during felt making) and the atmosphere felt like an evening spent with friends. ...
