We offer a full training in Felt making taking you from novice to professional.

Our unique programmes offer training designed to guide you, with the support of a master crafter and fully committed educator.

Our Foundation programme takes someone new to working in the studio environment, delivering the basics of what is needed to safely work as you develop new skills. It runs for one year as you decide if you wish to go further.

Our Intermediate programme runs for two years as you develop your knowledge and skills with tools and materials, giving you confidence in your studio.

Our Advanced programme runs for two further years, turning you into a master crafter in your own right with a unique voice through guidance from your mentor.

Each programme offers design, sampling for design and making projects. Through developing your design knowledge you will be able to find an individual voice as a maker as well as understand these challenges within your craft. The Felt samples folios you create in each programme is where you will explore the challenges of design within the craft as well as experience different materials, tools and techniques. You will make finished items, with appropriate guidance, in each programme, reflecting what you have been studying.
