What I do
I am a self thought textile artist working primarily with wool nowadays, even though I am a qualified saddle maker. 10 years ago I swapped leather for wool and I haven't looked back since. I started running courses and classes 8 years ago here in my studio.
I was awarded from the Irish Enterprise awards for best run courses in Ireland. Other awards I received, are from the prestigious Royal Dublin Society for my leather and felt works.
So you are in good hands for learning something new and exciting.
You don't need a lot to get started with wet felting.
- A fleece of wool
- Warm water
- Your hands
Of course some other tools come in practical to help out with wet felting. But if you are new to wet felting, most of the tools you probably have at home already.
It's a beautiful hobby. The varieties are endless. And best of all it is a sustainable source of raw materials to keep you entertained.
Is It For Me?
The most asked questions I hear.......
Can I do this with no experience?
Yes you can. I had many beginners in this class.
I have run classes from school age children to adults and everyone in between. Yes, some find it easier then others, but everyone always finishes their project with outstanding outcomes. I would recommend that children are over 12 years of age and get help from an adult to do this course.

There is no time limit on this courses and it is there for you as long as I maintain my website. Should my circumstances change I will notify you in advance so you will have time to finish the course and download information sheets.

The Calla Lilies course is very popular, as it gives a good understanding of what wet felting is about. I teach the principals of wet felting, Wet felting incorporating wire. And other useful tips when working with wool.
But that is not all. I'll give you some bonus material to let your imagination run free. Just one bit of advice....felting can become addictive.
