Hi, I'm Franziska

I'll be delighted to teach you.

Felt Artist @ Franziska

I am a self thought textile artist working primarily with wool nowadays, even though I am a qualified saddle maker. 15 years ago I swapped leather for wool and I haven't looked back since. I started running courses in person and online 13 years ago.

I was awarded from the Irish Enterprise awards for best run courses in Ireland. Other awards I received, are from the prestigious Royal Dublin Society for my leather and felt works.

So you are in good hands for learning something new and exciting.

Please feel free to contact me directly. I love a chat.

Is It For Me?

The most asked questions I hear.......

Can I do this with no experience?

Yes you can. I had many beginners in this class. Online or otherwise.

I have run classes from school age children to adults and everyone in between. Yes, some find it easier then others, but everyone always finishes their project with outstanding outcomes. I would recommend that children are over 12 years of age and get help from an adult to do the course. Some of the work in this course includes fine stitching.

Where can I buy the materials?

When you sign up for the course you have full access to the tools and material list. You can purchase all at your own leisure with links and recommendations. Or take the easy route and order a fairy kit via the website here, where all is included that you'll need.

You will also receive 10% discount on tools and materials. Just enter your special code if you make a purchase through my website Franziska

Do I have enough time to complete the course?

The course consists of 7 modules. You will need 2-3 hours in each module. Some may take even longer other's less time. There is no time limit on this courses and it is there for you as long as I maintain my website. Should my circumstances change I will notify you in advance so you will have time to finish the course and download information sheets.

The complete course is presented at one time. I guide you through the course through PDF's, written content and lots of video. I'll answer questions in the online classroom. Questions will be answered daily except on weekends. This is also where we can meet and connect with other students. Share our achievement and learn from others.

The fairy felting course is always very popular, as it gives a good understanding of what wet felting is about. I teach the principals of wet felting, some needle felting and also resist felting. Especially resist felting gives you a world of opportunities to discover.

But that is not all. I will also teach you how to implement wire into felt. And I'll give you some bonus material to let your imagination run free. Just one bit of advice....felting can become addictive.

More FAQ can be found on the home page or you can contact me here.
