We have decided to leave the planning of felting classes up to you.

Gather 2 or 3 friends together, decide what you want to do (a scarf if you are beginners) or you might like a bag or a hat if you have felted before and give us a call.

the day operates 10-3pm, we provide all the equipment and fleece, wonderful coffees and nibbles and you bring your lunch or you can purchase a platter of cheeses and a glass of wine from our cafe.  No BYO alcohol as our licence doesn't allow it, sorry.  coffee and cake is also available for purchase although we provide a coffee when you arrive

cost is $98 per person and you receive a 10% discount on any garment purchases on the day in our shop so it could work out the course costs less than you think!

for classes 50% payment is required to secured the booking. There is a cancellation fee if the class is cancelled completely.  Moving a date with more than 48 hours notice is fine

If you would like to make a weekend and bring up your partner we can send him or her off to play golf, fish, visit a winery etc and we can help you find a lovely place to stay.

Ever thought about having a different type of Hens Party? Sick of doing the same old thing as everyone else? Well then why not have a hens party here at Nickelby At Darnum???

Afternoon Tea is provided by us as well as all the non alcoholic fruit punch and you just have to bring your bottle of bubbles or two.

This is perfect for the crafty bride and friends as we have a go at doing some felting - we felt hearts and flowers onto a "banner" of sorts whilst having lots of laughs and breaks in between to say hi to the alpacas and just enjoy the view.  Lots of laughs are assured.

cost: for 10 people or less $470, extra ladies $40 pp. Up to 15 ladies can be accommodated.

Give Angela a call to work out your Hens Party/Kitchen Tea with a difference! 035627 8121
