Description

An exciting opportunity to create a hand felted book cover using merino wools and a selection of fabrics and fibres to make a book jacket slip with a richly textured surface. You will learn the basic technique of wet felting and how to integrate other fabrics and fibres into the wool. Initially we will work with undyed wools and fibres to create a white cover to dye at the end of the workshop when you can learn how to use acid dyes in a microwave to add rich colours to your work!

A great introduction to feltmaking for beginners and an opportunity to work with other fibres, nuno and acid dyes for those with some felting expereince. Some basic sewing machine stitching will also be included in the making of the item.
