Gain a better understanding of wet feltmaking…with the IFA

Discovering Feltmaking Course 3

This third course has been developed in two sections to show you how to use non-felting fibres and fabrics creatively to enhance your feltmaking and then to show you how to make decorative edges give extra interest and nice finishing. Non-felting fibres and fabrics create interesting texture and sometimes colour in feltmaking and can be compared to the artist’s changing tools such as from brush to palette knife, to create texture in the paint.

DF3 will also provide the third set of skills required for any student wishing to embark on CiFT.

About the course

The workshop is delivered step by step on screen and also as downloadable or printable pdfs through Ruzuku. You can work at your own pace throughout the two month duration 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.
