Skill Extension Program – Three dimensional felt

21/03/2020 @ 1:00 pm 4:00 pm

Join Jean and Sue to learn how to felt around a resist.  A ‘resist’ is simply a physical barrier that keeps layers of wool apart and stops them felting to each other, and is the main way (though not the only way) to create a three-dimensional shape in felt.  In this session you will learn how to felt around a resist and how to full and block felt to make a robust three-dimensional object. Tips and techniques will be shared to ensure even distribution of wool without ridges, lumps and holes! You will also learn how to form your felt into a 3D form that is firm and holds its shape when dry. You will make one small 3D sample – eg small vessel or phone case.  After this session you will have the skills needed to tackle a larger project such as a bag or hat

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.
