Get creative with colourful and natural wool fibers!
Laryna’s felt workshops, events and fibre craft demonstrations
Would you like to learn felt making? Felt making is fun, relaxing, creative and confidence building, plus can give you extra assets for your work and home life. It is a craft for all ages!
I mainly use wool fibres from native sheep breads and wash, tease and card the wool from fleeces I source in Scotland.
Originally trained as a hand weaver and art therapist. I have 30 years of experience teaching individuals and groups of all ages and skill levels in fiber craft and art in workshops, classes, on craft fairs, in community gardens, at open days, at family days, birthday parties, holiday workshops, in home schooling, and in schools. If you want to invite me to run a workshop, or teach felt making or spinning, tailored to your and your groups needs, please get in touch. I am happy to discuss the requirements for one workshop or a series of sessions.
You can book my service for events indoors and outdoors. For details of regular workshops and one-off felt workshops in and around Glasgow and beyond, please see below or get in touch.

Feed back from workshop participants
- C M: A pleasant, creative morning workshop making a wet felted flower; not difficult to do with easy to follow instructions from Laryna. Yummy home made biscuits too. Thanks Laryna.
- D: Laryna is an excellent teacher. The felted fairy class was nicely paced, allowing room to develop your own creativity. And the small group setting was perfect for me as I can get anxious in large groups of people. Thanks for inspiring another branch of creativity for me.
- R. S.: Absolutely delighted with the wet felting course attended this morning, where I made the material for my bag that I finished this evening. Very inspiring, thank you Laryna
- A: I really enjoyed Saturday making our fairies. My granddaughter said: “It was beautiful,” probably because she was pink. I will definitely come back to do some wet felting one Saturday and I would love to do some work with faces. That might be nice.
- G: Both L. and I enjoyed our afternoon of wet felting very much indeed. It was interesting, and we were able to come away with something unique and beautiful.
- B: I’m learning both needle felting and wet felting with Laryna. I’m thoroughly enjoying the different processes and aim to learn how to combine the techniques. Very creative craft and once learned and mastered, you’ll only be limited by your own imagination. Highly recommended. 🙂
- J: I’ve done two classes now with Laryna and they were both great. Laryna’s teaching is clear and fun, and the class is totally hands on and there are loads of colourful wools to choose from. The second class involved making a seamless felt pouch for my mobile phone, and it turned out perfectly, much to my astonishment! I’m planning to go back for another class soon!
- R: Great experience-very knowledgeable. Would come back for more workshops and highly recommended.
- C: That is definitely the way to spend a relaxing morning. Always nice to spend time with fellow felters.” Participant in the Wednesday morning needle felt class.
- S: It was great to be back, I enjoyed it so much and it was lovely to see old crafty friends and new people as well.” Participant in the Wednesday morning needle felt class.
- G: Enjoyed learning the basics of felting. I am hooked.
- N: Had a lovely time. Made a picture and a ladybird.
- A: Had a great time. Great learning experience for my daughter and myself. My daughter made a pond with some ducks and a rabbit and I made a dog.
- S: Great workshop, really enjoyed it and managed to produce a finished item. Great, thank you!
- H: Lovely workshop with a welcoming atmosphere. A therapeutic activity. Thanks.
- N: Fantastic relaxing workshop, very warm and welcoming!
- G: Thanks for yesterday’s workshop. I had a great time. Lovely ginger tea and fantastic cake! But most of all your teachings and patience was very much appreciated and that I got to take home my bespoke glasses case was just the added bonus. Many thanks for a great time. 😊
