£55

Event Navigation

Felt is one of the oldest known fabrics in the world. It’s made by wetting layers of wool roving and rubbing and rolling with soap until the fibres interlock to form a robust fabric.

In the morning you will start by making a flat piece of felt to learn the basic technique. You can decorate it with yarn, silk and other embellishments.

In the afternoon you will make a 3D object by felting around a resist. This could be a small bowl or a phone case. Again, you can decorate this in various ways.

What you will learn:
* Basic felting technique
* The properties of different types of wool
* The importance of allowing for shrinkage
* How to use resists to make 3D felt objects

What you make: A flat sample and a 3D sample

We provide: All materials, but please bring an old towel and a plastic bag to take your work home with you.
