Today we are excited to welcome back Karen and her ever popular felt workshop! Make sure you don’t miss her in our workshop room!
Remind us about about you and what you create?
I am a Felt Artist who creates hand felted dog inspired hats and many other animals inspired by their wonderful colours, textures …. and ears! I create an array of hand felted goodies from floral corsages, felt wrapped pebbles and bold wall art!
Will you be selling some special festive creations?
No, we will be making special festive creations! My felt making workshop will involve “Felting a Christmas Bauble” Using a plastic ball as a base, we will wrap it in wool, add our festive character …. or pretty pink rabbits (or anti festive spiders or black cats) and rub with soap and water, then voila! We have created handmade felt. It’s always great fun, suitable for all ages. Maybe this time Mums and Dads, let the kids have a go!!!
Will you be taking part in any other fairs over the Christmas period?
This is my year for trying all sorts, so here goes:
Makers Boutique: 23 November, 7 and 21 December

You have previously taken part in The Fairy Tale Fair. Did you enjoy the day?
It’s always such an enjoyable day, especially seeing everyones creations, but also having a quick catch up with all my Arty chums too!
What are your plans/ ambitions for the future? Or have you already achieved them?
Every now and then something surprising happens that takes me in a new direction. I find that exciting – not knowing what great things the future holds. I’m enjoying holding felt making workshops, I’m holding an after school club at the moment and one day I’ll hold regular adult classes ….
