FESTIVE FAIRY Michelle Goodfield, Thimble Wood Friday 10.00am

90-minute workshop – cost £25.00

[Max 16 people]

Join Michelle Goodfield from Thimble Wood to make an adorable Festive Fairy, perfect to adorn your tree!

You will learn the super fast technique to make a basic yarn doll and then how to add sparkly wings, tiny shoes and a glittery overskirt to complete your fairy, plus an accessory of your choice. Take home a full-colour instruction leaflet including any templates needed and your finished fairy!

The fairy is about 20cm (8”) from head to toe, not including the hanging loop.

Advisory Note:

This make is suitable for beginners and children 12+ with adult supervision. This project is fiddly rather than difficult, and includes some very simple sewing.

Michelle Goodfield

A lifelong crafter, Michelle has been lucky enough to work in the craft industry for 30 years, initially designing rubber stamps, then writing articles on card making. This led to a career in craft publishing, writing 12 craft books and hundreds of magazine articles.

It was always Michelle’s dream to start her own business and so Thimble Wood was born five years ago where Michelle gets to design the things that she likes to make; small projects, something a bit different, sometimes quirky, often cute (even though they weren’t really intend to be) and always great fun to make. Michelle loves to make up her own techniques and find the easiest way to do things!
