Wet Felting Workshop

Wet Felting Workshop

Details

You will learn the basic skills of wet felting in this workshop and there is plenty of time to create a picture or abstract. You will go home with something to be proud of!

In this 3 hour session I teach how to "paint" a picture using fine, merino wool. Layering the wool using the many colours I have available in my workshop.

All you bring on the day is enthusiasm and an appetite for tea and biscuits (all refreshments provided)!

You do not need any prior experience in felting to produce something fabulous!

What is Wet Felting?
As the name suggests there is a lot of warm, soapy water involved in the process of producing this type of felt!

After laying out a pattern or scene (landscape or seascape) with dry, wool fibers they are sandwiched between bubble wrap and net (to hold the fibers in place) wet down with warm soapy water, then rolled and rubbed. This interlocks and compacts the wool fibers as the individual wool fibers are covered with small scales. When water and pressure from rubbing are applied the scales open up and the fibers tangle together. When the felt dries the fibers stay tangled and become ‘felted’ material.

Half Day Workshop...
You will learn the basic skills of wet felting in this workshop and there is plenty of time to create a picture or abstract. You will go home with something to be proud of! £30.

Full Day Workshop...
A full day workshop is as the half day initially. We learn the basic skills of this lovely craft. How to lay out a design, mixing wool to create different shades and much more, then in the afternoon I will teach you how to embellish your creation using a wide range of wool; locks, yarn, glittery fibers, trimmings and lots of other lovely bits and pieces. Your final creation can be to hang or can be made into something else entirely! Small groups ensure lots of support and encouragement with a friendly atmosphere. £60.
