Gain a better understanding of wet feltmaking…with the IFA

Discovering Feltmaking Course 1

This online workshop has been developed by the International Feltmakers Association to help create an understanding of the process of making wet felt, paying particular attention to the quality of the finished felt.

This is the foundation on which all your future feltmaking experiments and projects will be based and is also the perfect stepping stone for those new to feltmaking who may want to go on to embark on CiFT, the IFA’s in-depth Certificate in Feltmaking Techniques.

About the course

The workshop is delivered step by step on screen and also as a downloadable or printable pdf through Ruzuku. You can work at your own pace and use the online group forum to ask the co-ordinator any questions you may have. If other students are doing the course at the same time you can join in with the group discussions.

The course runs three times a year with a period of access to the online material. The three slots are January/February, May/June and October/November.
