Extension Skills Program – Felting around an object
06/10/2020 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm
It is fun to felt around a rock or other object, but there are a few simple tips that you need to know to ensure that the wool is able to shrink properly to form tight, firm felt. Join us for a fun session learning how to lay wool around an object eg, a balloon or ball, creating sufficient space for the felt to shrink around the object to create a well felted piece. Holes can be formed in the felt to expose the object within. One sample piece will be made felting around a rock. This session will give you the skills needed to encase objects in felt to create jewellery, paper weights or other objects.
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.
