What will we cover?

Suitable for beginners, this half-day course is a chance to enjoy making colourful and tactile vessels in felt.  

 

You’ll learn the fascinating process of wet felting, and how  to use a plastic resist to create a 3D form such as our charming pots. 

 

You’ll learn all about: 

 

  • felting materials 
  • how to lay them out to get different effects 
  • the wet felting process 
  • shaping 3D creations.

 

Learning these exciting skills will allow you to experiment with other projects back at home, such as simple purses or cases. 

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?

You’ll need to bring an old large towel and an apron.  All other materials and felting wool are included. There will be a selection of colours to choose from.

What will I take home with me?

You’ll leave with your own felt vessel.
