Extension Skills Program – Cords, spikes and handles
20/06/2020 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Join Jean and Sue for a fun session learning a variety of quick and simple ways to make felt cords. These can be used to make felt jewellery or felt spikes and handles that can be attached to bags, hats etc. You will learn how to make a firm cord, how to attach them onto a felt base, and how to shape them into spirals. After this session you will have the skills needed to make and attach felt handles or spikes onto a bag or other object.
All the felting equipment is supplied, and materials will be available for sale on the day (cost up to $5), so you just need to bring along your enthusiasm.
These classes are designed for inexperienced felters, or anyone wanting to refresh their skills or learn a new felting technique. They are ideal for people who have completed the Feltwest beginners workshop and are keen to learn more, or gain the skills and confidence required to undertake a more advanced felting workshop.
Extension classes are kept small to provide a lot of 1:1 support to participants in a relaxed and helpful environment. The sessions will focus on creating one or more samples on a specific technique.
