Get creative with colourful and natural wool fibers!
Laryna’s felt workshops, events and fiber craft demonstrations
You would 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!
Originally trained as a hand weaver and art therapist. I have 28 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.

What workshop participants have said:
- 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 colorful 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 am planning to go back for another class soon!
- R: Great experience-very knowledgeable. Would come back for more workshops and highly recommended.
