In this workshop you will learn the wet felting process and make a unique piece of art the same time.
No painting or drawing skills are needed to get fantastic results.
The design of your felt picture is entirely up to you – it could be a colourful abstract, a landscape or a magnificent, bold flower. Feel free to bring along a picture you love as inspiration.
What will we cover?
We’ll begin by laying out the wool fibres to create a flat piece of felt. You’ll then lay out the top layer to create your picture.
The wet felting process involves rubbing and rolling (a process that can be quite physical) to felt the fibres together into a lasting piece of textile art. The wool is perfect for blending, providing real depth of colour in your ‘painting’.
We’ll then look at how you can add silks and yarns to create even more textural variation in your finished piece.
How will I be taught?
You’ll be taught in our lovely studio by a friendly and experienced tutor, through demonstration and guidance as you work.
You’ll also be able to ask questions, making sure everything is clear and that you’re getting the best results you can.
Do I need any previous experience or skills?
This course is suitable for complete beginners.
Are materials provided? Is there anything I need to source myself?
All materials are provided but you may wish to bring an image for inspiration.
Please bring a couple of old towels and an apron to protect your clothes.
What will I take home with me?
You’ll take home your felt picture to show off to your friends, as well as the inspiration to experiment with many more.
Drinks and biscuits will be available but we recommend that you bring a packed lunch with you.
