Full Programme

Please see HERE  for full 15 JUNE Covid-19 update. We’re very much hoping that courses will recommence on FRIDAY 24 JULY and all being well many of them will be taking place in our new spacious first floor workshop space that is currently being renovated. 
Please note all workshops up to 12th July marked as FULL are not actually taking place.  We are rescheduling all April to early JULY courses. Those enrolled have already, or will be, contacted asap.  Please email if you have a question.

It’s possible we’ll be adding several new course dates to the August and early September schedule.  This is taking some time so please do bear with us, most of these will be course subjects lost to Covid-19 cancellations.

Therefore, please use JOIN WAITING LIST if you can see a pre 12th July course that you might like to attend, should another date become available this summer.  (please join asap ie before the date passes and the waiting list option disappears). This is only an expression of interest and does not commit in any way.

Thank you
New dates added for after hoped for re-opening in late July...keep checking back

About the Artist  Marieke is a talented and largely self-taught felt artist who happened upon the history of felt and felting whilst examining the use of wool in sustainable living and her environment workshops. She loves the fact that many fleeces now sadly discarded by farmers can be reworked through felting into something equally beautiful and useful that will last for many years, so creating a further positive impact locally.

With roots in both of Holland and Wales, Marieke now lives in the Eden Valley and runs workshops in textiles, the environment and sustainability, taking inspiration from her beautiful Morland village in the Eden Valley.
