Event description

A fun, natural wool felt workshop for school age children! 

We will experiment with colour, shape and NZ made eco fabrics, learning how to mindfully craft while making beautiful projects! 

In this class your child will be guided by Textile Designer and sustainability advocate, Sophie, to learn how to assemble felt shapes for accessories and decorations.

Slow, simple crafts are a great way for children (and adults!) to bring balance to the nervous system and to digest thoughts and ideas away from the input of screens. 

Mindful creativity is a brilliant skill to learn, helping with regulation, fidgity hands or simply to enjoy completing a project! 

Your young ones will learn how to create hair accessories or decorations using beautiful NZ made woollen felt! 

Materials & hot choccie will be provided. 

Children under 5 are welcome, but will need to be accompanied by an adult. Focus and dexterity is required, you are more than welcome to stay in with older children to support them and mindfully create together! 

To attend the full morning of workshops including finger knitting and felt creations, select the "Textile Treasures" Discounted double workshop option and please include a snack and water bottle for your child during the changeover.
