The Mouse Hole Livestream Course


On this course we will create a miniature forest fairy tale with our own hands - a wonderful mouse in a cosy burrow, where it sleeps very sweetly.

This Mouse House Livestream Course is an exciting new online learning format. We will work together live and create a cute little mouse and her cosy sleeping hole using the wet felting technique. 


What is a livestream course?

It is as close as possible to a face-to-face workshop format, it involves working together during the broadcast and a lot of communication. I show you the process of creating mouse house and you work with me at the same time on your own ones. I answer all your questions via chat and help you cope with the work as efficiently as possible.


What do we do on a course?


On the course we will create a miniature forest fairy tale - a wonderful hole with a cosy sleeping place and its beautiful inhabitant - a tiny mouse. The mouse is a miniature sculpture, a figurine toy (height of the finished toy 9-10 cm. size of the hole 8x18x9 cm). 

This course has collected in itself practically the whole felting toolkit of the woollen miniaturist, sufficient for global construction: here we create both a cute mouse in the format of a figurine toy, and a three-dimensional interior object with volumed details, and a lot of tiny accessories. 

Toys should not be underestimated - they are complex three-dimensional sculptures on which you can learn a huge number of non-toy techniques and methods.

We use wet felting, dry felting, nuno felting and embroidery. We work with extra fine and coarse wool in different formats of 3D-felting, with fibres and textiles to create interesting textures.  And we explore all of this as we create a wonderful forest story with our own hands!

Nothing can go wrong here at all, you will always get something amazingly cute and warming to the soul - your soul will want to crawl into this house in the forest and curl up on a soft pillow. Personally, I felt like this all summer while I was setting up my mouse hole, and I confirm the therapeutic effect of this action.


How long is the course, will there be a recordings and is it suitable for beginners?


This course is an evening, four-day course consisting of four lessons. The course is ideal for beginners, but will also be of interest to experienced masters. I give very detailed instructions, so there is absolutely nothing to be afraid of. In addition, you will have a recording with unlimited access and my support.

Does it take much to get started?


The list of necessary materials and tools for this course is not big, everything can be easily found. I describe everything in great detail in the PDF file and introduction lesson that you receive right after payment, so that you have time to prepare before the course. 

The mouse in this course is a miniature figurine toy. To create felted miniatures, you don't need many materials and tools -  each toy weighs 7 grams only, and of the specific tools you need a ribbed antislipping mat from IKEA (or similar), as well as a needle felting needle. These tools must be prepared in advance, but the pleasure of felting is guaranteed! Believe me, I've been felting toys for 13 years, and still enjoy it.


Will I like it?

Such miniature toys are perfect pocket and table companions. Guaranteed to lift your spirits. And in the process of making them as well. Felting such toys is a complex art therapy - there is wool, hand work and wonderful heroes. It's all positive.
