About your tutor
Sara Masham studied creative Arts as a Bachelor of Education honours degree before starting teaching in 1990. She lived abroad in Norway for four years where she discovered a new creative skill in the form of needle and wet felting. She attended many courses during the four years to learn felting skills from very talented fashion designers and experienced felters from Germany, Denmark, Holland, Norway and USA. Sara has a great passion for felting and looks forward to sharing these skills with you on one of her courses.

Bring to the first session

Wool in an array of colours to make up to two flowers will be provided and any additional tools you need will be given for you to use on the day. Please note, if needle felting, replacement needles will have a small charge of 70p.

Extra study or practice

This is a craft that can easily be continued and expanded at home. Should you wish to continue Sara will be able to advise you where wool can be purchased.
