Textured Felt Book Jacket in Birmingham

Textured Felt Book Jackets


Spend an enjoyable day learning to felt a textured book jacket sleeve with a unique design of your own. This is a great workshop for beginners wishing to advance their felt making skills and for those who want to expand their felting knowledge. Workshop attendees can choose to work in a range of colours from our extensive wool store. Those attendees with some felting knowledge under their belts may want to work in white wool to then dye their creation at the end of the session.

You will learn how to;
*incorporate a selection of yarns and fabrics into your felt
*construct a seamless edge
*use a resist to create the book jacket slip pocket ends OR create a flat piece to machine sew the edges.
*make a felt rope to bind and tie your book jacket closed
Optional: dye felted wool using acid dyes.

Instruction notes are provided to take home on where to buy wool tops and recapping the process, so you can continue practising your new skills.
