You'll learn to create a seamless felt item e.g. a pouch, a pair of wrist cuffs or a small vessel.
With colourful sheep's wool fibres, warm water, soap and friction you'll learn to felt around a template to create a hollow felt item. You can create your own design choosing from many colour shades. Then the fluffy soft wool fibres will be transformed into a firm, felted useful item. It's great fun to experience the process of felt making. Children 10+ years are welcome when interested in textile craft and accompanied by an adult.
If you are a beginner in felt making you can make a felted bead to start with to experience the process of felt making before starting your seamless felt project. Felt making is a longer process and it needs some perseverence! :-)
Craft experience or basic felt experience welcome!

This was such a lovely workshop! Welcomed into the workshop leader's home, we were able to be inspired by all her own beautiful handmade art. A short introduction over a hot drink and biscuit and we were ready to begin. Laryna guided us carefully and gently over the process of wet felting, never taking over, and so we could be justly proud of our finished pieces - one phone case by the 19 year student, and one gorgeous vase, by me 🙂 I'm so delighted to have learned a new skill that requires very little material and no specialised equipment at all.
Laryna's Creative Fiber Craft:
Thanks for your kind review Karen. It was great to see you both learning the new skill and implementing it into your felt projects. Hope you'll enjoy your beautiful vase and Angel her pouch. I wish you lots of fun and success with more felting activities. You're very welcome to join another felt workshop, if you're looking for more inspiration. All the best Laryna
