The Wet Felting Company

With a newly opened gallery in the Ox Yard at Buckland Abbey, the Wet Felting Company is owned by local artist Claire Packer.

About the Wet Felting Company

Claire aims to increase the enjoyment and appreciation of the ancient art of feltmaking in its many forms. Using local materials, as well as fleeces from Australia and Norway, she creates an amazing range of crafts which are available to buy in the Wet Felting Company shop. Claire has been running workshops at Buckland Abbey for several years, and we're so excited that she is now a permanent fixture in the Ox Yard. 

The products

From snuggly slippers to wine bottle covers, if you're looking for a unique gift, you'll certainly find it here. You can purchase wool fibre and equipment to have a go at felting at home, as well as rugs, bags, decorations and wall hangings. There's also a stunning range of fine wire jewellery made by Claire's daughter, and much more. 


Claire also runs a number of workshops throughout the year, from two day courses to family friendly drop in sessions. Look out for some of these at Buckland Abbey, or contact Claire to find out more.
