One of my most popular workshops - now in a Wallet with everything you need to make two beautiful flower brooches at home - and a gift token towards doing the same workshop with me face to face sometime before May 30th 2021.
Your kit includes bubblewrap to work on, resist material to form your shape, wool fibres in a choice of colours, even the brooch pins for your finished flowers. You will have fully illustrated instructions, and even my contact details if you need help. The only things you will need to have are a suitable working surface (kitchen worktop or waterproof covering for a dining/kitchen table), a towel, soapy water and scissors. To finish your brooches off you will also need a needle and cotton.
A Workshop in a Wallet is suitable for total beginners to feltmaking, or improvers who would like a bit more experience or move on from flat felting to 3D objects. It also makes a great gift for children over eight years with some parental guidance. Any time I feel there may be a concern, the instruction (like using hot water or scissors) the instruction is written in red.
CORONAVIRUS REASSURANCE: The paper and wool are from new packs only handled with vinyl gloves on. The plastic wallet, brooch pins and my contact details have only been handled with gloved hands in the 5 days (or more) prior to packing your purchase. The only thing over which I have no control is the outer packaging.
You will get more than enough wool fibres to complete two flower brooches. You can choose one of eight palettes:
Oranges & lemons, pinks & purples, reds & tans, pastels, greens, blues, brights. There will be four colours included in each. The eighth option is monochrome, which includes three colours - black, natural and grey.
