Weekend workshop on July 2nd / 3rd 2016
A large piece of handmade felt, designed personally, is a lifetimes treasure.
We would like to give you the knowledge, space and inspiration to create such a treasure. Our felt rolling machine makes it possible to create a large piece of felt without the physical toll these pieces can be.
We will have a yurt erected to show case the panels of felted wall hangings and floor covers made co operatively by many different felt makers.
On day 1
- learn how to design a large piece allowing for shrinkage.
- How to choose the wool breed or type according to your design challenge and effect desired.
- How to create design on felt using a variety of techniques.
- Piecing together the knowledge and felting your piece
This workshop is suitable for those who have made felt before or energetic ‘newbies’. You will be working on a large scale in an outdoor covered area for your assembly stage.
Numbers are limited for this workshop
Workshop is from 10am to 4pm each day although we envisage people working later in Saturday.
We have some accommodation available and there are local facilities also.
Cost for this workshop is £140 with materials and nutritious light lunch included
