About the Course
An opportunity to spend a focused day learning how to achieve a range of textured effects by applying the Shibori process with wet felting. The day will include examining how specific effects are created and making your own samples, applying the process discussed and demonstrated. The aim will be to achieve at lest three samples including ripples, pleats, ‘Coral wave’ and spikes.
The workshop is suitable for beginners and those wishing to extend their felting practice. The workshop runs from 10am - 4:30pm, (participants are asked to arrive at 9:45am for a 10am start). Please get in touch for more information or to book your place.
Your tutor will be Emma Jackson, a felt maker with over fifteen years experience teaching, designing & making felt for her award winning textiles company, Silversoles. The workshop will take place in her home studio in South Birmingham with a small group of no more than five. Please note: the studio is situated at the bottom of a garden with one step up to access the building.

A brilliant day, resulting in three different examples of shibori felting. Emma is an excellent teacher and guided us through all stages of the process, enabling us to felt with confidence! Thank you!

This was a brilliant day!! I had relatively little prior knowledge of felting but Emma helped me through the basics so that I could also enjoy and learn about the shibori felting process.
We were busy from 10 til 4 almost nonstop and there were loads of chances to ask as many questions as we needed and seek advice. I loved the variety of techniques which were shown and just being in the workshop, surrounded by Emma's work was inspiring.
I am still waiting for my samples to be 110% dry before the big reveal, but can't wait to see how they look when I take the stitching out.
Thank you for a wonderful day
