Felt Textile Workshops
Workshops are organised throughout the year and can be tailored to suit the individual or group. Workshops are held at my home in the pretty village of Alan south west France. The focus of the workshop is to learn new skills in a creative and relaxing environment.

"Tracy is an amazing teacher. She encouraged us to create things that we never would have imagined were possible and gave us the confidence and skills to build upon. It was a real inspiration and I'm still making felt today."
Grace Barbic, jewellery designer.
" I will always be grateful to Tracy Chaplin for teaching me the art of felting. She shared with me her professional skills and creativity, in a relaxed and fun workshop, hosted at her beautiful home in SW France. A very talented and dynamic lady. I wholeheartedly recommend this course, you will be truly inspired."
