We are delighted to add the Kingfisher to our Beloved British Birds series!  Synonymous with hazy summer days spent beside shimmering streams and shallow pools the Kingfisher is part of our English heritage.  Come and learn how to needle felt and celebrate the royal colours of this beautiful bird while they are most active, tirelessly catching food for their half dozen young who eat 12-18 fish a day during the months of May and June!

During this workshop you will learn…

  • How to make a naturalistic Kingfisher with vibrant colours

  • How to wrap and shape core wool forms

  • How to create subtle colour feather effects 

  • How to make the beak

  • How to wrap the Kingfisher’s wire legs and insert into a wooden base

Whats included...

  • Wool

  • Wire

  • Templates

  • wooden base

  • 100% wool mats and needles

  • All other materials needed

  • Organic fresh coffee, teas and freshly baked cake from the Oast Bakery

  • A delicious home cooked lunch

Please feel free to bring along a small dry perching branch to display your kingfisher on.

"I came to your Song Thrush felting course on Saturday with Cecily Kate and it was the most marvellous day! The course tuition was incredible, informative and imaginative.

The instructions were well explained and easy to follow despite it being a complicated bird to recreate and the resulting thrushes were fantastic.  I was not expecting to be able to create such a wonderful specimen myself but with Cecily Kate’s techniques and encouragement,  I surprised myself. And to top it all the lunch and refreshments were amazing!

I had a thoroughly enjoyable day in such a peaceful and calm setting. I will definitely be back".
