This course covers all the skills you need to produce a wet felted embroidered piece. The first day will cover felt making from basic felt to the use of pre-felts to create a painterly felt back ground for stitching.
On the second day you will be shown how to stitch on the felt with sewing machines and then to add hand stitching to enhance the piece, and you will be well on your way to creating a beautiful piece of embroidery to enjoy finishing at your leisure.
A demonstration of stretching and advice on mounting will be covered briefly.
