Feltwest beginner’s classes aim to teach the basics of the wet felting technique with merino wool, and how these can be adapted to make differing forms.

At the conclusion of the workshop, the participants will:

  • Understand the qualities of ‘good felt’
  • Understand the difference between a pre-felt, and fully felted piece
  • Understand how and why wool felts, and factors affecting different shrinkage rates
  • Understand that wool from different  sheep breeds can be felted and  will produce felt of differing qualities
  • Be able to pull wool and lay out finely and evenly
  • Be able to wet felt a sample square using the rolling technique
  • Be able to full a felt sample by tossing, scrunching and hand rolling, and options of using different tools such as washing boards.

Workshop outline
Classes will be of 3 hours duration with a maximum of 6 students per tutor, eg 9.30 – 12.30.

Participants will then be encouraged to look at Feltwest members at work, and join in Toss and Tell.

Feltwest can  provide sample packs of wool for $10.
