Taking place at Heather's home in Camberwell. You will be fuelled by plenty of home made cake, teas and/or coffee. With a maximum of four participants, these three hour workshops are 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. Heather will guide you through how to lay out the fibres to make a flat piece of felt. She will also introduce you to how to blend colours using carders. Then using your reference material create a simple figurative or abstract image on the top. Lastly yo will learn how to transform all the loose fibres into a piece of cloth. If you can not quite decide what type of image to create Heathers home is full of art and design books and if need be she can print you an image to adapt. 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. Allergies to cats or indeed wool? Please note Heather has three cats (they all will be elsewhere in the house during the workshops). Antihistamines are available but her workshops may not be for you.
