Course Details

Have fun creating a range of felt items using the ancient art of wet felt.  You will start off by creating your own flat piece of felt progressing on to 3D shapes, felt beads and felt against a resist.

No previous experience needed, just willingness to have fun and learn at the same time.

The Tutor will bring along a selection of materials which will be available to purchase for a small additional fee.  There will be the opportunity to purchase a starter kit so that you can continue felting at home (this will be approximately £15 or you  can purchase "pay as you use" items ranging from £3 – £10.       Please bring a plastic bag to take wet items home in.  You may also like to bring a small sewing kit (small scissors, needles and cotton).

You will be taught by means of practical demonstration and hands-on experience.
