This workshop is being run in conjunction with The Illawarra Feltmakers Inc
Over the course of the day you will learn how to lay out fleece, the felting process and how to recognise when your felt is fully felted. You will also learn how to incorporate textural materials such as fabric and threads. We will also touch on the use of resists to create a seamless hollow.
All materials will be supplied and will include everything you need to start on this wonderfully creative adventure. You will also receive comprehensive notes to take home along with your finished pieces.
Felt is a versatile textile and is not confined to clothing, accessories or industrial purposes. Its sculptural qualities, along with your imagination, will allow your creative potential full reign.
