 Introducing 'Prince Buggly'

Prince Buggly is a six legged, winged critter that is full of character. During the course of the day you will have fun creating and personalising your own wet felted critter.  These critters may be used as a Christmas tree decoration, a conversation piece or a collectable. 

Special Note ‘Buggly’ critters are not suitable as a child’s toy.

In this workshop you will learn how to:

  • plan and design a critter
  • calculate shrinkage of wool to achieve the desired critter size
  • design and use a resist
  • cover florist wire with florist tape and wool fibres
  • wet felt the body and head of your critter
  • finish your critter and add embellishments to create character.

Demonstrations and examples are used throughout the workshop.

YOUR TUTOR: Juliana Knight.

Juliana was first introduced to feltmaking in 2016 and is passionate about creating unique, quirky and one-of-a-kind felt items.  Living on a farm, she finds that a lot of her inspiration for her feltmaking comes from her surrounds.  

Juliana has won many Grand Championships the latest being Overall Felting Champion Royal Canberra Show 2022.

With a background in teaching children and in adult education (including running craft workshops), Juliana has planned a fun day of feltmaking and looks forward to guiding you through the process.
