During this full day workshop you will learn the basics of wet felt making from merino fleece. You will be able to complete a scarf or collar in vibrant colours and produce further pieces that can be made into flowers. You might even choose to make a panel for use as a cushion cover.
Jeanette’s relaxed and patient approach ensures a productive day with a lot of fun.
Felt is one of the oldest man made materials with a fascinating history. The simple yet incredibly effective process of wet felting can be used in variety of ways, from making garments and 2D wall hangings to sculpting 3D objects. A limitless range of colours and textures can be achieved through the remarkable qualities of Merino wool and silk.
