Wool is a wonderful material. Many items, like scarves, bags, rugs and slippers are made of wool felt. During this workshop, you will experience the magic of felting. We use warm water, soap and our hands. This is where magic happens! We start with a short explanation about wool and wool felting and I will show you some samples. Then we practise our skills of wool felting by creating our own piece of felt. We also make a small object, like a felt bead, flower or bracelet. I will provide all the materials you need for wool felting. You can choose from a range of colorful wool and pure undyed wool from European sheep.
I have been working as a professional felt artist since 2013. I studied Cultural Studies at the Erasmus University of Rotterdam (Master of Arts). Utrecht is my home town, where I live in the green neighbourhood of Vleuten. Nature inspires me in the wool felt items I create for international customers. Also, I give wool felting and other craft workshops for adults and children. I love to share my knowledge and enthusiasm about wool and sheep!

We meet and stay for the wool felting experience at Hoeve Wielrevelt. It's in Utrecht at neighbourhood of Haarzuilens. Hoeve Wielrevelt is a modern barn with chicken and rabbits surrounded by a nature reserve. It's a starting point for biking, hiking or just sit back and enjoy a local drink at the 'Gasterij Wielrevelt'. The location make you experience the laid back atmosphere of the Dutch countryside. It's the place I give most of my workshops.
