2 hours Private Felting Workshop Session



“I just wanted to say thanks for the 1-2-1 private session on needle felting. I feel like I’ve gone from a novice to confident in just 2 hours. It was really great that you could tailor the session to suit my needs. You’re a great teacher - won’t let covid stop us from crafting !!!” Kirsty R. 

2 hours Private Felting Tuition :

Who will be teaching me?

You will be taught by Gillian Harris : author of "Complete Feltmaking"; Carnival of Felting";  "Felting Fabulous Flowers" and "Easy Stuff to Make with Fluff" and owner of The Gilliangladrag Fluff-a-torium.

Who is it suitable for?

Everyone! This 2 hour private Felting workshop session can be tailored to your needs! :-) If you are a complete beginner that's fine, or if you are more accomplished and want to learn something more advanced that's also fine. You can buy this session in chunks of 2 hours, so if you wanted to book 4 hours, you would buy a quantity of 2 of these 2 hr sessions - and so on! Adults and children over 11 only please.

Where are your Private Felting Tuition Sessions Held?

Private Felting workshops are held 'in person' in our studio above our shop at The Gilliangladrag Fluff-a-torium in Dorking, Surrey UK. (There's a map at the foot of our home page!)

Is there a Virtual Digital Version available online?

If you can't travel to us for any reason, we can arrange a virtual private class held online via Zoom etc. However, you would need to purchase the equipment we would normally use in class to keep (eg bamboo mat / netting / felting needles etc.etc.) but we would send you the wool you would need for the planned project.

Dates and times

2 hour sessions must usually be on a weekday as we will probably be running online tutorials or larger group tutorials in the studio at weekends. Although there may be exceptions on occasion - eg if you work weekends etc. If you are booking 4 hours or longer we are more likely to be able to offer a weekend.

We will endeavour to find a mutually agreeable date and time asap! If we can't then we will offer you a refund. Once booked - our regular Ts and Cs apply and it's not possible to cancel within 30 days of the mutually agreed date. We will send you confirmation of this date.

What if there's 2 of us that would like to learn together. Is it the same price?

No it would be 50% more for the 2nd person to cover extra costs. You can still book this session and then we can invoice you for the rest. If there are more than 2 of you then please contact us for a bespoke quote.

What if there's more than 2 of us that would like to learn together. How much is that?

We would charge £50 per extra person for the 2 hours. (Maximum 5 students with 1 teacher = 6!) You can still book this session and then we can invoice you for the rest.
