Felting in Warwickshire

About the Course

Wet Felting or Needle Felting Workshop
In this workshop you can choose either wet felting or needle felting - please see descriptions below:

Wet felting is a method of producing felt from wool and other animal fibres. Warm soapy water is applied to layers of wool tops. Repeated agitation and compression causes the fibre to hook together to create a single piece of fabric.
Please bring: a wooden rolling pin ( a piece of doweling of same size would do), a large towel (to absorb water from your felt as you are working), pictures to inspire you.

Needle felting is a process using a barbed needle to mat the woollen fibres onto a piece of felt instead of using soapy water and rolling wool to create a piece of felt (as used in wet felting).
Once felting is completed you will be able to hand or machine embroider on top to further enhance the design.

Please bring any pictures that inspire you (Virginia will bring books and pictures as well)

Virginia will demonstrate machine embroidery at the end of the session.

If you will be redeeming a CraftCourses gift voucher on this course, the voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

What's included in the price?

All materials except for large bath towel ( to mop up excess water and to help with felting) plus a long wooden rolling pin for wet felting.
