Workshops

One of Feltwest’s founding aims is the promotion of quality feltmaking and to that end we have been committed to facilitating and a range of workshops on the first Saturday February to November for nearly 20 years. Over the years we have held workshops on all kids of felting and are proud to continue this tradition with this years program.

Workshops are heavily discounted and therefore are for members only but our membership is a very reasonable cost per year. If you would like to attend one of our workshops there is always a Membership & Workshop bundle available. For our members – you know the drill – log in to see the Members Only bookings.
