Learn to Wet Felt Slippers Course 08/06/24

My Wet Felt Slippers Course is back! :-)

Learn to make your own pair of fabulously warm, soft, felt slippers with me Gillian Harris - author of "Complete Feltmaking"; Carnival of Felting" ; "Felting Fabulous Flowers" and  "Easy Stuff to Make with Fluff"! The Felt Slippers course runs from 10am - 4pm.

Where? Held in my studio at The Gilliangladrag Fluff-a-torium premises in Betchworth Surrey. Free onsite parking. Map at foot of homepage.

What's included? My Slipper Felting Course includes :

  • 1 x  pair of polystyrene shoe lasts in your size. These are yours to keep after the course and can be re-used to make more slippers afterwards! :-)
  • All the merino wool tops you'll need for your felt slippers
  • Tea, Coffee, refreshments + afternoon tea and cake
  • 10% off in the shop on the day of your felting course - you may wish to buy felt soles, suede soles and further wool tops etc! Plus we have lots of other goodies xx

**Please be sure to tell us your shoe size when checking out - in the 'Special instructions' box.

We will felt the slippers until they are nearly finished and then you will take them home to "full" and spin them in your washing machine. I will also outline how to make a felt rose or felt flower to adorn the fronts of your felt slippers as well!

NB: Maximum students is 6 on this course.

How much does it cost? £120 (inclusive of VAT)

Slipper Last Sizes :
Slipper lasts come in double euro sizing. They are quite roomy - but remember to go up a size if you are unsure - as you can felt the finished slippers down to shrink - but not the other way around! A British 5-6 is a Euro 38/39 so if you are usually a large 6 or a 6.5 when you buy shoes, then go up to the 40/41

NB : These sizings are very APPROXIMATE!
