felted bagFelted workshop with Chris Hall of CakeTin Hats.

In this workshop you will create a pattern (template) for your pouch, select your colours, design and then create your own felted masterpiece using beautiful merino wool and silk fibres. We will use a resist technique and seamless felting construction method. Felting is full of endless possibilities and what you create will only be limited by your imagination!

Skills required: Beginner class – no felting experience is necessary. 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 and the use of all necessary items including soap slurry, bubble wrap, pool noodle and felting tools.
