Festive felt dog craft workshop

Winter can be a wonderful time of year. It brings chilly walks and sofa snuggles (both best with a canine companion). And what better to do on a rainy afternoon than cosy up and get crafty?

Join needle felting expert Steffi Stern from The Makerss for our online DIY dog decoration workshop for a live craft-along on Facebook, or catch up later by watching a recording of the session.

You could design a dog that resembles your own faithful friend. Or felt a Fido that looks like a pal’s pooch – a great Christmas gift. If you don’t have a dog, it’s your chance to create a perfect pet in miniature.

The workshop is suitable for total beginners all the way through to experienced needle felters.

Every ticket includes a £10 donation to Dogs Trust, so you’ll be helping the dogs in our care as you learn a new skill.

Ticket sales have now closed, thank you for your interest in our Festive felt dog craft workshop.


What does the ticket price include?

Your £20 ticket includes:

  • a pack with all the wool and tools you need for the workshop, posted to your home
  • access to the live session, through a private Facebook group
  • a £10 donation to Dogs Trust, so we can help even more pooches

What will I make?

Your pack contains enough wool to make a pair of pup pals. You’ll make one during the workshop and can make the second in your own time.

When’s the workshop taking place?

The live online workshop will run on Thursday 9 December, from 7pm until around 9.30pm. You don’t need a Facebook account to watch the live stream, we’ll send you a link to it via email, but the live chat will only be available to those logged in to Facebook. After the event, we’ll send ticket holders a link to a recording of the event, so you can watch it again or in your own time.

Who’s the workshop suitable for?

You don’t need any previous experience of needle felting to take part. As we’ll be using sharp needles, the workshop is only suitable for children of 10 and over, supervised by an adult.

Who’ll be running the workshop?

Felting expert and craft enthusiast Steffi Stern will be your tutor on the day. Co-founder of craft business The Makerss, Steffi has written several books about felting.
