Step into Lisa Olson’s shoes at Tigerlily Makes in Lichfield in Staffordshire and experience an explosion of innovation in felt colour and design.
The interior positively exudes creative thinking. Lisa helps you create chic handbags, slippers, tea cosies, decorative bowls and jewellery. It is a testament to Lisa’s teaching skills and personality that ensure that the courses she runs weekly are frequently booked well in advance.
Guests come from all over the country and the world to take part in a Tigerlily Makes felt-making day, so far Tigerlily Makes has been host to ladies coming as far as Hawaii!
No prim and proper reserved “look as I do school of tutoring here”. Guests are encouraged to give full vent to their creative streak - we all have one! Felt-makers have full input to their own design, from choosing the colour of the wool fibre, form and finishing touches. However it is Lisa’s attention to personal detail that sets her apart in this craft, even down to welcome tea and cakes served with no less style than at the Ritz.
