Event description

Description

An opportunity to create a unique piece of home decor to complement your home and learn two new skills -Feltmaking and Lampshade Making!

Day One: Using native breed or merino wools with additional fibres such as silk, linen and exotics like angora you will design and make a piece of felt fabric. You will learn how to lay out the wool and other fibres and apply wet felting techniques to bond the fibres together. At the end of the first half day session you will have a piece of felt fabric which you will go on to make your Lampshade.

Day Two: Using the felt prepared in the first session you will make your Lampshade. You will learn how to cut your felt fabric to size, adhere a fire resistant backing and shade rings, and gain a basic understanding of how to apply this knowledge to future projects.


Please note - All levels /expereince welcome - some knowledge of felt making is useful, but not essential. If you are interested in seeing what you can make during the workshop, images from previous students can be seen by visiting my website or my pages on https://www.craftcourses.com/courses/

All materials for the course are included in the course fee of £75 in addition to tuition, handout notes and refreshments. You are welcome to bring along any yarns other fibres you might like to include in your work. Tickets can be purchased via Eventbrite or directly through my website www.silversoles.co.uk (minus the booking fee).
