FELT PAINTING CLASSES
I run art based classes on how to do felt painting onto box canvases for anyone of any age and experience over 18. They are most suited to beginners and improvers.
Over the past 25 years I have taught 2 dimensional and 3 dimensional art skills including everything from a wide range of different drawing techniques and media to painting, textiles, clay and sculpture. My studio space comfortably accommodates 10 but I keep classes to 4 so groups are small, sociable and plenty of help and support is available, whilst maintaining social distancing due to COVID restrictions. All materials are included in the price of the classes but some students choose to bring their own media with them.
Listings of up and coming classes will be posted here.

"What a really marvellous course, so enjoyed it in every way. Can't believe what I achieved."
"Great fun - would recommend to anyone. Give it a go!"
"Fantastic felting. Forgiving. What a wonderful skill to learn. Suited me so well as there are no rules and free expression achieved success."
A big congratulations to these wonderful ladies on completing my first ever 'Painting with Wool' classes, March 2020!
Here are the outcomes of 10 weeks of classes. It was a blast and I look forward to seeing you all carry on felting!
Nicky is an excellent, enthusiastic, knowledgeable teacher who explains techniques clearly, is extremely encouraging towards her students. She gently guides her students, allowing for individuality but offering (and demonstrating) suggestions in a friendly, positive, unthreatening way, ensuring each student makes the best possible progress. Her work is displayed in her workshop / studio as confirmation to her students of her talents. I would highly recommend Nicky as an art tutor.
When I first saw Nicky's display in Locks Heath prior to Christmas 2019, I was amazed to discover that her work was made of wool, not a painted picture.
I was fascinated.
I joined her 10 week course in 2020 and produced my first canvas. A squirrel.
I am delighted with the result as I'm not an artist. This will not be my only canvas. Doing something different has been inspirational and enjoyable.
ALL CLASSES HAVE BEEN REORGANISED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE DUE TO COVID-19. CLASSES WILL NOW NUMBER NO MORE THAN 4 PEOPLE.
