Felt workshop in Glasgow: Felt your own bag, beret, vessel or slippers

Felt making is an ancient technique to create a woollen fabric. I love it and like to share my experience and skills with you. Wet felting is a really amazing process, where fluffy sheep's wool turns into a sturdy, but still soft fabric. You can create beautiful items, like decorative objects and wearables and give them your very personal creative and artistic touch.

In this wet felt class for intermediate and advanced felters you will

• create your own made-to-measure pattern

• use a resist to create a seamless bag, beret, vessel or slippers 

• learn about the process of wel felting around a resist to create a hollow felt

• experiment with colours and design

• take home your very personal felt piece 

 Basic experience in feltmaking is essential for this workshop.

 Please bring a towel, a bar of glycerin soap (e.g. pears) and a plastic bag for your finished, but still wet, felted item.

Tea will be provided. Please bring a packed lunch.
