Make your own felt beads

6:30p.m. to 7:30p.m.
The Open Shop
20 Hawthorn Terrace
York GB

I will show you how to make felt beads, starting by needle felting a selection of coloured wool fibres. You will then wet felt them to ensure you can make a piece of jewellery that will last to wear with your favourite outfit. I can supply all the materials but would ask if people could bring along a small towel to save me having to do lots of washing

Bring one of the following:
A Smile
Bottle of Sparkling Water
Good Conversation
Piece of Fruit

About the teacher, Christine Cooke

When I retired I was looking for a new craft that didn't need a lot of expensive equipment and was cheap to do. Felting met these criteria and a lot more. Just using a few basic techniques it is possible to produce a wide range of very individual items - jewellery, scarves, hats, and lots more.
