I run this one day regularly, covering most of the basic techniques used in wet felting. It’s a good starting point for anyone wanting to learn the basics, or just have a really good day out!  At the end of the day, you will come away with a finished piece of felt, and the confidence to carry on to make lots more! 

In the morning we’ll make samples of ways to develop patterns, experiment with mixing colours and making and using pre-felts, using  layering to form pockets and flaps, or incorporating fabric to make fine nuno fabrics. These are felts which incorporate fine silks or other fabrics to create wonderfully lightweight, strong warm fabrics suitable for scarves, clothing, or lampshades.  They can be sheer, or wonderfully textured, with contrasts between the wool which shrinks, and the fabric which does not.    

After lunch you’ll be shown how to translate your ideas from an image or source of your own choice into a design to make a piece of felt for either a picture, scarf, cushion , book, or ipad cover.

What's included in the price?

Additional Information

Felt is one of the earliest fabrics to be made, occurring throughout the world, and used extensively for everything from hats to tents. It is simple and therapeutic to make, using easily obtainable equipment and materials, and offers the possibility of fantastic results.

If you are visiting the Forest Of Dean on holiday, or arranging a fun and creative day out, I can tailor courses to suit you, whether you would like to produce something for your home, or to wear, or maybe as a special present for a wedding, baby shower, or anniversary, give me a ring.

I run these regular courses at my workshop, for up to 4 people, on the dates shown, and other dates by arrangement. I can also run any of them for up to 12 people at other venues.
