WHAT TO EXPECT:
Join me and learn how to create a beautiful piece of felt. Using wet felting techniques you will have the opportunity to experiment with silkily soft merino wool fibres, play with colours and shapes and learn how to craft a lovely woolly piece of fabric that you can take home to use as a wall hanging, a framed piece of art, or to use as a piece of fabric to sew any item you can think of from.
WHAT TO BRING:
All necessary materials will be provided. It would be useful to bring a clean towel and a plastic bag though, as your piece of felt is unlikely to be dry by the time you’re leaving.
WHAT YOU WILL TAKE AWAY WITH YOU:
A lovely, tactile piece of felt. Designed and created by yourself. Note: It’s likely to still be damp, so bringing a clean tea towel and a plastic bag is a good idea.
None at all. This is a beginners workshop and no previous experience of felt making or working with wool fibres is necessary at all.
NUMBER OF PLACES:
There are 6 spaces available for each course. With such a small number of us, everyone will get plenty of one-to-one time and have the opportunity to ask any questions or queries as they come up.
ACCESS TO VENUE:
The workshop room that we'll be using for the afternoon is up a flight of stairs and I'm afraid there is no lift. Feel free to contact me if you need further information or specific details.
BOOKING YOUR PLACE:
To book a place on one of my workshops, please send me an email via the link above with your name, which workshop you would like to attend and your email address.
Kat Wood is a York based Textile artist. After studying Art and Design at University, her preferred medium is felt, but she also works in embroidery, mixed media, crochet and knitting. Kat runs workshops in a variety of textile and art forms around the North of the UK, both commercially and in school and healthcare settings.
If there is anything that you’d like to ask, please don’t hesitate to contact me by phone or email.
What's included in the price?
All the tools and materials needed to create one beautiful piece of felt will be included. Tea, coffee, cordial and biscuits will also be provided.
A small library of images will be available to look through on the day to use as inspiration, or a rough starting point. Alternatively, if you’d like to bring an image to use as inspiration, you’re more than welcome to do so. Please note that this is a beginners class, and we will only be working in relatively simple shapes at this stage.
Further to this, all attendees will be offered a 10% discount at the venue shop; the fantastic Knit and Stitch York.
There is no parking at this venue. The nearest car park is the Shambles Q-Park, a 4 minute walk away. If you are coming to York via train, the station is about 15 minute walk away or a 10 minute taxi ride.
