Little Felty Toy – New Classes Coming Soon

New Workshops Coming Early 2024

 

Hand stitch this teeny treasured toy

 

This divine little whale is crafted from pure wool felt and your own stitches!

Whether you have some stitching experience, or a lot, join us for a fun session putting this super cuteness together.

This class is perfect for new parents, those soon-to-be, ‘grans that can’t wait’ – or anyone wanting to get into creating beautifully small felt toys.

Made from snuggly 100% pure wool felt in a selection of beautiful colourways, this little treasure will surely become a favourite of a special little someone!

 

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  • In this workshop you will learn how to construct a small toy whale from pure wool felt, stitching it together using 3 different embroidery stitches, filling it, then finishing it off to perfection.
  • Our teacher, CWA handicraft award winner, Sil, will take you through, step by step, showing you how to sew, fill and complete to then take home to treasure.
  • Love to name yours? Our personalisation service is also on hand – done for you on the day for a small additional charge.
  • Like to make the larger toy whale too? Additional kits will also be available for purchase at the class.

Come along to our Makers’ Mornings for a great couple of hours over a scrummy morning tea bringing along whatever you’re working on at the time. Sit, relax and chat while you stitch, embroider, knit, crochet, whatever! Maybe you need a hand with sorting out a crafting boo-boo (we all have those!) – we’ll have an experienced Mindful Maker or two on hand to assist with sorting it out for you. If you’d like to come but aren’t working on anything in particular, we have small, fun crafty kits available for you.

 

Beyond the basics, our other needle-working classes give you the opportunity to expand your skill set in a supportive environment with expert guidance. Email us to join our waitlist to continue learning with us in extending your embroidery stitch repertoire, make a stunning needle-keeper, or an heirloom piece like a personalised linen napkin and so much more.
