X

Description

June 18th - 1 place left Workshop full or can't make my dates - gather together a group of 4 and get in touch for a date and time just for you. Schools and Community Groups priced separately, please contact me. Good for those of you who already know the basics of 2D wet felt making but complete novices have also successfully completed a pot too.. Though if you have no previous experience you may find you need to complete the fulling process at home. Heather will guide you through the layering technique to make a seam free vessel, the gate way to all things 3D whatever the scale. With a minimum of three and a maximum of four participants, these three and a half hour workshops are designed to provide everybody with plenty of time for one on one attention. Heather always aims for sessions to be flexible to individual participants needs. Tabletop Workshops, the teaching arm of Purr & Wag It runs out of Heather’s Camberwell home. There will be plenty of home made cake, teas and/or coffee to keep you going. Wet felt making is a simple process (once you know how) made up of a series of repetitive actions. Many people find it relaxing and some a stress buster. But, elements of felt making are quite vigorous and very hands on. If you have arthritis in your hands you may find parts of the process challenging. That being said it’s not stopped anybody before and Heather is very happy to help you with vigorous parts of the process. Want to know when new dates and courses are being added?
