X

Description

Enjoy making a bag with a beautifully textured surface using natural fibres and fabrics. Combining wool, cotton or silk you will be shown how to use resists and Nuno felting techniques to construct a seamless felted wool bag with integrated resist patterning within the surface. 

During the workshop you will learn how to -

*Design and make your bag 
*Made a resist pattern from a template to form your seamless bag
*Create surface pattern and texture by using resist shapes and fabrics 
*Make seamless 3d felt
*Incorporate fabric texture using Nuno technique

This is a great day to expand your felt making skills - suitable for those with felt making experience and for beginners with a basic felting knowledge, as groups are kept small. The bag shape will vary depending on attendees experience and design ideas. Once you have learnt the Nuno and 3d resist skills you will be able to begin applying them to other projects too, for instance cushions, purses and vessels.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 4 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
