Wet felting is an ancient art form and can be used to create stunning decorations, novelty items and garments. Layers of wool fibre are worked together around a template using warm water, soap and a bit of elbow grease. As the wool fibres shrink, they twist together to create a unique natural fabric.
Who Is This Workshop For?
For those with some knowledge of wet felting as this is a slightly more challenging project, it is recommended that if you are new to wet felting your try another felting workshop first.
We will start with a demonstration, presentation and skill building session that will cover the basics – how to handle wool fibres, how to felt them together into a stocking using soap, water and bit of elbow grease, and how to attach the ribbon to your stocking so that it can hang (this will be a demonstration only as your case will still be wet).
What Should I Bring With Me?
Just bring yourself as you will receive everything you need for use during the workshop. This workshop does involve getting wet so a smile and a sense of humour will be advantageous, ready for a fun session.
If you have any allergies or skin sensitivity please bring your own soap.
What Do I Take Home?
You will take home the stocking that you produce in the workshop. Your stocking will need to be dried at home so you will be provided with a plastic bag and the knowledge of what to do next. The stocking can be embellished and a ribbon added to hang your stocking with (supplied at workshop).
