Online class – Felted bags and small cases

3 April @ 8:00 am - 7 June @ 5:00 pm


This is an online course over 6 weeks for felt-makers with some previous experience (suitable for felt-makers who are comfortable felting over a resist, please contact me if you are not sure).

The first tutorial will be posted in the class forum pages on April 16th, with 2 more tutorials posted weekly after that. The class forum will remain open for you to share your work and ask questions until 7th June 2020.

As this is an online class you can work at your own pace and in the safety of your own home, there is no requirement for you to be online at specific times.

What will this course will cover?
We will make a series of bags and small cases:
Week 1 – animal-inspired phone / spectacles / pencil cases with closures and flaps made from felt.
Week 2 – a bag with adjustable shoulder straps / handles, internal pockets and a magnetic clasp. How to create a blend of wool colours.
Week 3 – a backpack with internal pockets and your choice of felt or canvas adjustable straps. How to make your bag stronger without making it heavier.

Registration for this class will remain open until 7th April 2020, a materials list will be provided upon payment of your invoice. I am afraid we cannot accept registrations after April 14th. Please click on the event website for more information, to sign up or to contact me if you have any questions about the course.
