About this Event

Small Felt Pots: Beginners Wet Felting Workshop

Tuesday 26 May 7-9pm

Learn how to create beautiful textured seamless wet-felted pots using merino fleece.

Feltmaking is an ancient craft that uses sheep's wool to produce a fabric. Water and soap are added to wool fibres which are then rubbed together to mat and shrink. You can create beautiful textured pieces of art with stunning effects.

This workshop is an introduction to wet feltmaking for those with little or no experience. We will cover the basic techniques of laying out fleece and how to use a ‘resist’ to create small seamless 3D pots. We will also explore using other natural fibres such as silk and linen to create gorgeous textural effects.

Absolutely no artistic talent or experience required. Suitable for complete beginner feltmakers or those with some experience who would like to explore 3D techniques.

Suitable for adults and young people aged 12+ (under 16s should be accompanied by an adult).

£15 per person, includes all equipment and materials and unlimited tea, coffee & biscuits. Spaces are limited to four, pre-booking is essential – please book using the Eventbrite ticket link.

Please aim arrive at 6.45pm to start at 7pm.

The workshop will take place in my studio on my family's farm in Littleworth - full directions will be sent once your place is confirmed.

Unwind Arts and Crafts are workshops that are a creative bubble bath for your soul. They offer the chance to slow down, catch your breath and enjoy some time to yourself to have fun, relax and be creative.

Unwind is run by me, Lindsay, both in my own studio on a farm in Littleworth and I also travel to lead private workshops for charities, community groups and private parties.

I have been selling and exhibiting my own work and teaching textile workshops for adults and children for the last 8 years.

I am passionate about encouraging other's creativity, and about the potential role for art and craft in our mental wellbeing. Unwind aims to bring these together with fun, inspiring, creative workshops that focus on enjoying the process just as much, if not more, than the finished product. I hope they can be a harbour from the storm of our busy lives and minds. They are also a welcoming and accepting space for those struggling with depression and anxiety.

If you are interested in attending any of my workshops or how I could work with your group please do get in touch - I look forward to hearing from you!
