Event description

Description

Ever wondered how to create Felt? During this introductory workshop you will learn about the ancient art of felt making practiced by the nomadic people of Central Asia for thousands of years and now being adopted by textile artists across the globe. You will learn about the process of bonding wool fibres together using the wet felting method, from laying out the loose fibres to working them together with other exotic fibres to form a new and unique fabric. You can use your felted work to stitch into, frame, embellish other textiles with and much more.

Included in the workshop will be tips on pulling out the fibres from the wool tops, creating even felt, how to incorporate other fibres and yarns along with notes to take home on where to buy wool tops and recapping the process so you can continue practicing your newly learnt skills.
