Felted Nordic Gnomes or Tomte or Tonttu are the cutest Christmas decorations you can think of and appear in all Scandinavian homes and folklore at Christmas time. And when they are made of wonderful wool and needle felted into characters of their own, they are truly adorable!
This workshop is taken by Sandy from Lincolnshire Fenn Crafts. Sandy has been to Blacksmith Shop Crafts several times now and always to full workshops.
You will make at least two Tomtes, probably three in this super relaxing and fun workshop to take home with you. We will not be singing Christmas related stuff as yet but may make tinsel compulsory to wrap round your creations! Workshop will be informal with one-to-one tuition and a guarantee of tea, cake, creativity and a new set of crafting skills.
This workshop is equally enjoyable for novices to needle felting and to those who are more experienced at this fascinating craft. No tricky patterns. No sewing. No wires. No expensive fancy equipment! All you need to bring is the enthusiasm!
All materials will be provided.
