Come and play for a day in my studio. Spend the day learning the basics, exploring new techniques, and/or working on a project of your choice. All levels of experience from beginners to the more advanced are catered for. If you're not sure what you want to make take advantage of the other resources available: felt books, magazines, samples, and see the other participants at work/play. 

My studio is in Marrickville. The classes run from 10am - 4pm, with all equipment and most materials, and morning tea provided.

Workshop fee is $150, with a deposit of $50 due on enrolment. Deposits can be refunded or transferred on request outside of 7 days of workshop date. Due to small class numbers I am unable to hold a place for more than 7 days without a deposit. So if I haven't received a deposit or notification from you 7 days after booking, your place will automatically be given to the next person on the waiting list.

Wool tops and some silk fabrics will be available for sale on the day or you can bring your own along.

To book a workshop, discuss a project, or for further details email me at : gilbrooks@smartchat.net.au or text me on  m. 0404 228 264.

I'll send you an information sheet with all the relevant details, including how to pay your deposit.

Group bookings of up to 6 are available, depending on the project. Email me to arrange a mutually suitable date and discuss your potential requirements.

Gift vouchers are also available for the creatives in your tribe.

Come and join the fun and don't be put off if you believe you're not 'creative'. Felt-making is a very forgiving and generous medium, no skills required, just a sense of curiousity and a playful attitude. You'll be pleasantly surprised at what you can achieve and discover that you may just have that creative spark after all....
