Workshops are run throughout the year to provide members and non-members with new skills and ideas on a range of felting techniques and applications - and occasionally other transferable skills such as dyeing or beading.
Our workshops are always very popular so please book early to secure your place. The workshop program is usually published on the website in the first few months of the year, but updates are released throughout the year.
Bookings are made using the Add to Cart option on the workshop outline page.
(If you are completely challenged by the online booking system, you can use the old application form: PDF or Word file).
Full payment is required before the workshop to secure your place - after booking an invoice will be provided 6-8 weeks prior to the workshop setting out the payment options and due date.
If a workshop is full you can still submit a workshop booking to put your name on the waiting list. Cancelled places are offered to people on the waiting list in the order their booking was received.
