Designed by Benton's Menagerie
In this kit you'll make your very own tomte - a scandinavian gnome, who, according to folklore, protects the home and is particularly active in the Winter months.
These little felted fellas have always been a great hit in workshops at my studio and now he's available in a box for you to make at home.
The Tomte is great fun to make as you get to try your hand at both wet felting and needle felting. You will wet felt his hat, just using your hands, no templates required for this. It's about as natural a making experience as you can get and harks back to ancient felting techniques. You will needle felt the rest of your tomte.
We also include some curly wool for his beard and you can make it as short or as long or as neat or as wild as you like.
Your kit will contain everything you need to make your tomte, including wool, felting sponge and needles. All you need to provide is a bowl of warm water and a drop or two of washing up liquid.
Your instructions are via highly detailed video tutorials and your link will be sent when we pop your kit in the post.
Suitable for all ages - but a not tiny hands (the needles are too sharp)
PLEASE NOTE: The felted Christmas trees are not included but they will be available very soon as a kit.
