As well as promoting our craft, another aim of the IFA is to support the practice of feltmaking.
Join a Regional Group
All our regional groups are there to help and support everybody who is interested in feltmaking. We do this through members’ days and workshops. These are fun events spent with like-minded people where we learn, exchange ideas and enjoy doing something we are passionate about.
Use our education facilities...
Our NEW online course for beginners (members and non-members alike) is available for purchase on our website. These workshops give the beginner an understanding of the process of making wet felt, paying particular attention to the quality of the finished felt.
This is the foundation for all your future feltmaking experiments and projects. It is, therefore, the perfect stepping stone for those new to feltmaking who may want to embark on CiFT, the IFA’s in-depth Certificate in Feltmaking Techniques.
Certificate in Felting Techniques (CiFT)
The IFA has a Certificate in Felting Techniques programme (CiFT) which is available to all members. It introduces beginners to various felting techniques with support available, should you need it, from experienced mentors. Find out more about CiFT.
