This workshop is for those of you who already know the basics of 2D wet felt making. Heather will guide you through the layering technique to make a seam free vessel, the gate way to all things 3D. Wet felt making is a simple process (once you know how) made up of a series of repetitive actions. Many people find it relaxing and some a stress buster. But, elements of felt making are quite vigorous and very hands on. If you have arthritis in your hands you may find parts of the process challenging. That being said it is not stopped anybody before and Heather is very happy to help you with vigorous parts of the process. Allergies to cats or indeed wool? Please note Heather has three cats (they will be elsewhere in the house during the workshops). Antihistamines are available but her workshops may not be for you.
