Learn how to turn a pile of wool fibres into a piece of cloth. Then learn how to make a vessel without making a single stitch! This is a 2 part course on two consecutive Tuesday evenings taking place at Purr & Wag It HQ; Heather's home studio in Camberwell. Designed to provide everybody with plenty of time for one on one attention Heather always aims for sessions to be flexible to individual participants needs. Session 1 takes you through how to make a small flat piece of felt, blend colours and chose and prepare your fibres for your 3D vessel. If there is time Heather will also show you how to make beads. Session 2 guides you through how to use a resist (this is a piece of cloth or other material that stops the wool fibres from one set of layers felting to those below) to make a seam free 3D vessel. By the end of the short course you will have at least one 2D and one 3D wet felted works.
Make a sprig of mistletoe to hang in your home or give as a gift. In this workshop you'll be guided through how to make a piece of flat felt to use for leaves, as well as how to make 3D "beads" to use for berries. You'll then cut your felt into at least six mistletoe leaves and with a bit of wire cutting, wool winding and stitching, create your sprig of mistletoe. Please note as felt takes a while to dry your everlasting mistletoe will be wet when you leave.
