About the Course

A creative workshop at the back of this lovely arts shop.

Wet felt-making is the oldest form of textile and is a magical craft. Wool and silk fibres when damp and rubbed together will bond irreversibly forming an exciting and organic fabric. Catherine will show you how to felt a shape from scratch and assemble it by yourself - from laying down wool and silk fibres right through to embellishing with felted balls and beads. She demonstrates and you follow! or create a landscape or an abstract!

Choose from over 25 beautiful shades, each item is completely unique in every way. The finished item can be stitched further or used as a brooch, hair pin, fascinator or hat decoration.
Suitable for all abilities age 14 upwards. Depending how quickly you felt as everyone works differently, you can complete 2 small projects.
