Heart Felt

Last year, a friend and I attended a beginners’ felting workshop run by The Tewkesbury Sewing School, where we were encouraged to create free-form designs using a range of simple techniques and various scraps of materials. Everyone in the class had great fun and the items we created were so diverse you’d have thought we had attended different workshops!

Ta-dah!

Have you attended any crafting workshops? What has been your favourite?  I’d love to hear about it!
