Upcoming Workshops

felt folds

Pleated Felt Scarves

Saturday, 31st October, 10am – 1pm

Online demonstration delivered via Zoom

Cost: £45

Based on Canadian smocking, these techniques do not lend themselves to a real time workshop. Therefore, I have chosen to offer a demonstration where I will explain three different pleating techniques and how to apply them to make scarves. I will record the demonstration for students to refer back to, or watch later, if they cannot attend in person. I will explain how to prepare felt for the pleating, how to create the pleats and finish with various dyeing methods.

Further details and information on how to book, please email Mandy.

Make a dish for your Christmas table – perfect for containing chocolates! And you can use it afterwards to keep your jewellery safe.

I will record the sessions for students to refer back to, or watch later, if they cannot attend in person.

Carmarthen

Cost: 

A rather ancient technique, used by the Romans, it is very low tech and wonderful items of jewellery with a professional finish can be produced in a few hours. Students make moulds in plaster or cuttlefish to their own designs, then lead free pewter is poured into the moulds using hand gravity casting.  The moulds can be reused to make pendants, earrings, brooches, keyrings and fridges magnets.
