contemporary & creative feltmaking for the textile artist

Welcome to the home page of York Felt Makers

york felt makers community group

We are a group of enthusiastic felt makers whose aim is to promote contemporary and creative feltmaking.

This ancient art has recently enjoyed a revival with the recognition that felt has an almost limitless potential to be used in an exciting way to produce jewellery, scarves, hats, bags, clothing and decorative pieces for the home.

The joy is that each piece is individual and reflects the personality of the maker.

We meet monthly on a Saturday at Dunnington Reading Rooms where we offer a variety of workshops and talks by local and national feltmakers. Please check our Diary for further details. Dunnington Reading Rooms, Church Street, Dunnington. York Y019 5PW.

Whether you are a complete novice or wish to extend your skills in feltmaking then we are the group for you.
