Felt making is the fascinating art of creating textiles using wool, water and soap. Projects covered include flat felting for pictures, cards, book covers and wall hangings, jewellery, 3d felting for bowls and bags and nuno felting for scarves and collars. Felt making is highly addictive and after a while participants gain the confidence to develop their own projects using the wide range of materials available
There are two groups – beginners and intermediate
The Convener is able to host a maximum of four people in her home workshop and will arrange regular monthly sessions for two terms, following a specific programme covering various felt making techniques and gradually increasing the level of difficulty of the projects tackled. Members will need to be able to commit to regular attendance
A second intermediate group for members who have completed the beginners’s programme will also run monthly. Again numbers will be limited to four, but participants will be able to opt in to the projects they are interested in, or suggest some of their own.
Both groups will run on Wednesday mornings, 10.30 a.m – 12.30 p.m.
