This workshop will be taught by Chris Hall of CakeTin Hats.
Students will design and make two beautiful small felted vessels from merino wool and silk fibres using different design techniques, styles and colours. You will learn about resist techniques and differential shrinkage methods used to create various shapes. By the end of the day you will have completed two lovely little vessels which you will take home to dry. These can be used to hold your little treasures, small potted plants, jewellery, spare change or as lovely free standing sculptures. Felting is full of endless possibilities and what you create will only be limited by your imagination!
Skills required: Some felting experience is preferred but not mandatory. Felting skills involve everything from delicate hand and finger dexterity to strong physical effort in the arm and shoulder area and requires some standing. Maximum 6 participants.
Materials included: Merino wool, silk fibre, template material, soap slurry, bubble
wrap, pool noodle and felting tools will be available to use.
Students are required to bring: Two old bath towels, two hand towels, a bucket, sharp scissors, an apron or a change of top (not necessary but just in case you get wet) and your lunch (or there is a cafe located across the street).
Cost of the full day workshop, including materials is $120.00 (plus HST).
