Learn Wet Felting and make a picture in the morning with our very own Gillian Harris - author of "Complete Feltmaking"; Carnival of Felting"; "Felting Fabulous Flowers" & "Easy Stuff to Make with Fluff" ....and then in the afternoon get taught to hand embroider exquisite stitches over the top of it with Livia Papiernik - who has worked with Alexander Mcqueen and is a part-time lecturer in Hand Embroidery at the Royal School of Needlework! :-) WOW! Livia is a mixed-media textile artist specializing in 'storytelling' through hand-embroidered art and installation, and works from her studio in East London.
