Wet Felted Pots

Tutor: Carol Wilson
Length: 2.5 hours
Max Learners: 6

During this workshop, you will create a unique felt pot from a variety of fine wool fibres and explore the 3D sculptural possibilities of wet felting. Wet-felting involves the creation of a fabric using the combination of wool fibres, soap, water and friction – AKA elbow grease!!  It is a magical craft and the possibilities are endless.

Who Is This Workshop For?

This a fun and creative workshop is suitable for beginners or those with a basic knowledge of flat wet-felting wishing to develop their skills and go 3D.

How?

We will cover the skill of creating hollow, seamless forms with the aid of templates to create a choice of different styles of bowls and vases.  Use a ready-made shape or create your own with some guidance.  We will cover felting fibres with warm water, soap and friction.  This will be followed by fulling or shrinking the fibres to form the felt vessel

What Should I Bring With Me?

Just bring yourself and an apron if you have one as wet felting involves getting a little messy with soap and water!

What Do I Take Home?

Take home a completed felt vessel which will simply need to air dry when you return home.  There will also be notes to take with you.
