Wet Felting Workshop: Introduction to 2D Pictures and 3D Construction Stalbridge Dorset Somerset (Level: Beginners)

Wet Felt 3D Pods Bowls Vessels Bags
X

About the Course

Spend a day learning to wet felt.

Pictures, powls, vessels, pods, bags and flowers (and more!) can be constructed using simple 3D techniques.

We will start by making a 3D wet felted bowl as your first introduction into exploring the possibilities of using felt. Then we will move onto wet felted pictures, which you could later make into framed pictures, bag fronts, book covers, and wallhangings.

You will have opportunity to also learn how to needle felt onto your wet felted pieces so you can add depth/texture as well as 3D needle felted items to your work. For example, adding needle felted butterflies, leaves, flowers etc.

Embellishments such as beads can also be sewn on my hand or embroidery stitched to add texture and details.

This is a truly creative felt-making day!

This class is suitable for adults and accompanied teens.

You will learn how to make felt using wool and wet-felting techniques. You will also learn needle felting techniques for embellishment.

Price includes all the materials to make a 2D picture project piece approximately A5 sized plus a small 3D bowl and/or some needle felted embellishments.

Embellishments such as beads and buttons can also be sewn on by hand, embroidery stitched to add texture and details, as well as adding 3D needle felted details to your work. For example, adding needle felted butterflies, leaves, flowers etc.

This is a truly creative wet-felt-making day!

Suitable for complete beginners and those with some wet felting experience who wish to add to their knowledge and improve their skills.

We use as many ordinary household items as possible to make wet felt so there is very little you need by way of additional equipment to continue this versatile craft at home - just felting wool! For needle felting at home, you will need felting needles and a surface to work on such as a foam pad. These will be supplied for use while you are in the workshop.

All the other equipment will be supplied except an apron which you may like to bring. Please wear clothes suitable for crafting (wet-felting can get a bit damp but not very 'wet').

Wet-felting can be quite physically hard work so help is always available if you should need or want some extra umph! and we adapt how we work to be fully inclusive.

You may want to do more work on finishing your picture after the workshop.

Maximum number on workshop is currently 2 people for July (and may increase to 4 people in August).

Larger groups can be accommodated in a workshop arranged specifically for you on a mutually agreeable date from Aug/Sept 2020.

Please bring your own lunch and any other refreshments which you would like. A kettle for hot water and access to cold water is also available. No other refreshments are included at this present time.

Attended this class yesterday and completely loved it. Sally made the class completely accessible to beginners and encouraged our own creativity whilst guiding us with the technical side of things.

With the chance to try a sample piece first we could try out some different ideas without committing to a final piece, which was a great aspect.

Really pleased with how my final picture came out and this is definitely down to the excellent guidance and advice along the way from Sally.

Would definitely return for another class! Thank you so much xx

Response from Craft Workshops:

A thoroughly satisfying and informative workshop. Thank you Sally for a great session wet felting. I had no idea how to do it before but Sally was patient, encouraging and a great teacher. The day went very swiftly and after as much tea or coffee as we wanted, plus all the materials we needed, we all were very successful with our final pieces. I loved the day and would definitely do another.

Response from Craft Workshops:

This course is fantastic in all respects. Sally provided all materials necessary (and more) for you to be able to produce a really substantial piece of art. She is a talented tutor who guided me expertly through each stage, and insisted on supplying me with tea and coffee all day and wouldn’t even let me clear up. The premises were ideal and we had a lovely self contained room for us to work.
All in all, an fabulous day, excellent value and I came away with a new skill I am thrilled about.
Will be booking on another course soon!
Thank you Sally x

I attended this course on 13th July 2019 as a follow on to a previous needle felting day with Sally to refresh the process of both needle and wet felting.
It is the third course I have done with Sally and I cannot recommend them enough. It is a very relaxed small group session which means that Sally is able to offer everyone individual tuition as needed.
She provides a warm and welcoming atmosphere along with a good sense of humour. Whether you are a beginner or more experienced there is alway something to learn from Sally’s expertise and she is happy to share all her knowledge openly and encourages you to continue with your chosen craft.
Each day offers a variety of projects so everyone can have a choice and work at their own speed which is brilliant rather than all doing the same thing.
I recommend Sally’s courses and will be booking more in the future and attending her Sunday follow up craft sessions.

Earlier this year I attended one of Sally’s needle felting courses and loved it! Last Saturday a friend and I did the wet felting course and loved it equally as much!
Sally is a wonderful teacher, very patient and encouraging, with a really good sense of humour! We all went home with a picture, a small pot and a bowl ( mine not really a bowl but a nice piece of felt!!) I would definitely recommend Sally’s courses and will be booking more in the future.
Thank you Sally.

This course was exciting with instant and stunning results. I still can't believe I made three good things in one day! Being told what to do step by step was so reassuring and Sally could spot errors we were unaware of and point us in the correct direction before we ruined our work, that sort of experience would have taken me years to gain, if I had the time to do it! Hugely valuable.

Excellent workshop! Sally makes it good fun whilst teaching you in such an easy to understand way. We made three lovely different vessels using different techniques with everything you need supplied. Good company, excellent tuition, will definitely be booking on future courses. Thank you!!
