Wet Felting - Thursday 2nd April - 7-9pm
Welcome to the fascinating alchemy that is wet felting. Starting with merino wool fibres in a wide range of colours we will create a piece of felt – this time we will create a flat piece of felt which can become the background for stitching later. You can choose to create a scene or an abstract piece.
During the workshops which range from 2 hours to whole days you will learn all the skills you need to be a successful felter. You will choose the fibres, layer them in the right way and then wet the wool and encourage it to knit together. Once the initial wool tangling has been achieved it is then onto the felting proper, it does take a bit of energy on your part but is worth the effort.
You will take home a finished piece of felt at the end of the session and I will keep you motivated with tea and cake!
If you want to continue at home, I always have plenty of wool roving and felting tools in stock.
