Felt-making - for beginners & improvers
Come and learn the oldest of textile arts - Feltmaking. During the day you will have a beginners guide to the traditional wet-felting technique and make a piece of beautiful felt fabric that you can transform into a brooch, purse, other small item, or simply frame up as a picture. You will also have an introduction to seamless or 3D felt and be able to make a seamless item of your choice.
Feltmaking is a very satisfying creative activity which is suitable for everyone. We will work with pre-dyed merino wool. Be prepared to roll your sleeves up and get stuck in, it can be quite physical! This really is a craft that you can easily do at home, with very little equipment needed.
