Colorful Wet-Felted Purse or Vessel Workshop

Time: Saturday May 4th 2019 9:30 am - 3:00 pm

Cost: $75 Instruction fee and $15 materials fee

In this workshop we’ll be making a colourful, seamless felt project using resists (barriers between layers of felt). Some experience with wet-felting will be helpful, but beginners will be able to work at their own pace by choosing a less complex project. We’ll work through the steps of completing the project together, but there will be lots of opportunity to use your own creativity to make a uniquely personal object. The techniques learned in this class will provide you with a strong foundation for exploring felt-making further on your own.

We’ll be covering:

  • A brief overview of how to make felt;
  • How to use resists to create hollow objects such as purses, bags and other vessels;
  • How to create beautifully complex colours by layering different colours of wool;
  • How to use shibori tieing to create surface relief and reveal underlying layers of colour.

Materials and Equipment: The $15 kit fee covers the wool, fibre, upholstery thread, yarn, resist material and bubble wrap supplies that you will need. We’ll email those who register a detailed list of other items for you to bring.
