Workshops

I will be running a number of felt making courses, please scroll down to see what has been scheduled so far, more will be added soon but if there is a technique you are keen to learn or something specific you would like to make, please let me know.

If you have a larger group (more than 4 participants) I may be able to teach or demonstrate at your venue, please contact me to discuss.

Some ideas for possible workshops:

  • Nunofelted scarf (incorporating fabrics with wool)
  • Felted slippers
  • Fingerless gloves
  • Felted mittens / fingerless gloves
  • Felted bowl / pod with or without extra resists for added textures
  • Felted bag (small /medium = 1 day, large or lots of pockets = 2 days)
  • Felted pet cave (2 days) – you need to be physically fit for this class
  • Felted concertina hat (2 days)
  • Felted snail hat (2 days) – this workshop is suitable for intermediate to experienced felt-makers only
  • Felted tunic or waistcoat (2.5 days) – not suitable for beginners
  • Screen-printing on felt

Under 16’s attending my face-to-face classes must be accompanied by an adult.

Concertina Hat Class – an online course held over 6 weeks for felt-makers with some previous experience of working over a resist.

Registration opens 10th Oct and course starts on 24th Oct

Learn how to make a stylish or quirky concertina hat, then make the super-cute snail hat and in the final weeks use your new skills to make creations from your own imagination or the suggestions from the fourth tutorial. This course is delivered online and you can complete each tutorial at your own pace and times to suit you. The forum pages and tutor support will be available for 6 weeks.

The PDF tutorials will be yours to keep and refer to after the course. The forum pages and tutor support will be available for 6 weeks from the course start date in case you need to catch up or if you would like to make more hats. Follow this link for more information and complete the contact form if you would like to receive an email notification when registration opens.

Please note this course is not suitable for complete beginners. You should be confident making flat felt and ideally have successfully made a few wet-felted pods, a bag or hat before. If you are not sure please email me: teri@teriberry.com before signing up.

Felted Bags and Cases Class – an online course over 6 weeks for felt-makers with some previous experience.

This class will be made available again in early 2020 (dates to be confirmed)

Learn how to make a series of bags and small cases:

Week 1 – animal-inspired phone / spectacles / pencil case with closures and flaps made from felt.

Week 2 – a bag with adjustable shoulder straps / handles, internal pockets and a magnetic clasp.

Week 3 – a backpack with internal pockets and your choice of felt or canvas adjustable straps.

We will cover a variety of felting techniques including how to shape the bottom of your bag so it stands up when placed on a table, how to blend colours, how to create felted tabs and loops, how to make large bags stronger without making them heavier, how to add pockets and where to place them.

This course is delivered online and you can complete each tutorial at your own pace and time to suit you. The PDF tutorials will be yours to keep and refer to after the course. The forum pages and tutor support will be available for 6 weeks from the course start date in case you need to catch up or if you would like to make more bags, perhaps combining the techniques from different weeks into a new bag design of your own.

Please follow this link for more information and complete the contact form if you would like to receive an email reminder when registration opens.
