Online Felt and Mixed Media Dragon course


Felt and Mixed Media Dragon Course £110
An intensive 6 session Course

2023 dates coming soon

Creating the dragon involves a variety of wet felting and needle felting techniques as well as some mixed media to create his claws. Each session we will cover a different element and skill so you need to be able to do all 6 workshops. You'll learn a lot and create a fantastical creature along the way!

(For this course I've added an extra week on to the course; making it a 6 week course so that we can spend more time on the detailing ... with each course people get more ambitious!)

For those who've already created a dragon with me in the past but want to have a refresher and make more, I've introduced a Dragon Alumni price of £65

You can join me in the workshop or online via Microsoft Teams

Alongside the course you will have access to a private facebook group, which includes lots of tips and videos for helping you to create your dragon, it will also allow Anna to support you with your dragon progress. Each week there will also be a little homework and the opportunity to work on what you've been doing in the session, so you should create some amazing dragons.

All key materials will be provided, including 3 felting needles. If you need a felting block please order one at the time of booking. (I will send you a basic felting block, it is simply a piece of upholstery foam, which works perfectly, but you may wish to source one yourself separately).

Of course, no-one really knows exactly what a dragon looks like, so you can choose your own colours. The green dragon, shown, has lots of detail, I'll give you the skills to do that, but if you want your dragon to have that much detail you'll need to do a quite a bit of homework too!

Whilst each week we'll be going through different techniques this is an intensive and advanced course so if you're new to needle felting, please have a go at one of our beginners workshops first so you understand the techniques more fully before embarking on such a complex project.

The dragon workshop is with Anna Roebuck.

Anna learnt to felt many years ago whist studying Fine Art Tapestry at Edinburgh College of Art. She got back in to felting through The Craft Club sessions here at The Making House and has now taught a range of needle felt and wet felt workshops over the last 5 years.
