Creative classes for adults and kids of all skill levels

The Fabric and Felt Studio is launching an exciting NEW series of interactive creative workshops this Autumn/Winter 2021! If you were one of the many people who found their creative spark whilst in lockdown, come and gain some exciting skills at The Fabric and Felt Studio!

Did you know such creative activities help one focus their mind and have been compared to meditation, due to the calming effects on the brain and body? In fact, creativity can improve your overall mental and physical health and increase happiness!*

Led by Shelley Burton or a special guest teacher, this is an opportunity to try your hand at the traditional art of felting, embroidery and sewing and meet awesome 'crafty' friends in a fun, encouraging and supportive environment.

All are welcome, whether you are new to the wonderful world of felting, embroidery and sewing or looking to expand your skills.
