Introduction to Wet Felt making workshop

Wet Felting
X

Description

Felting is a fascinating craft, turning individual wool fibres into a warm, strong, versatile fabric that can be made large enough to create homes like Mongolian yurts, rugs, clothing, shoes and bags using just water, soap and friction.

You will learn the technique of laying down the fibres and rubbing and rolling to make a simple seamless bag using a resist, you will also learn how to roll fibres to make a strong handle for your bag.

In the afternoon we will combine wool fibres with a light natural fabric with the Nuno felt technique to create a silk Nuno scarf.
