Introduction to Felt-Making

Learn the technique of wet felt-making using colourful and natural wool fibres. Felting is a technique that has been used by humans for practical and decorative use for thousands of years. In this session, you can learn the basic technique of how to create a piece of felted wool, which can be the basis for your own artwork in the future or simply to try out this historic craft. Bring a plastic bag or tupperware box to take away your piece of felt as it will need drying at home. We will be using soap so if you have sensitive skin please bring your own plastic gloves.

Bring one of the following:
A surprise!
Commitment to sign up and teach at Trade School on a subject of your choice
Herbal teas (not green tea)
Interesting papers to use for craft projects
Lavender essential oil
Natural household cleaning products
Textile bits & bobs, such as ribbons, needles, buttons, embroidery threads, zips (5", 6" or 7") etc
