What you will do

Single session

This any time, any day three hour class is for those of you who fancy some one on one tuition at your own convenience.

The 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 but she always aims for sessions to be flexible to individual participants needs.

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’s not stopped anybody before and Heather is very happy to help you with vigorous parts of the process.

Tabletop Workshops, the teaching arm of Purr & Wag It runs out of Heather's Camberwell home where as well s a wide selection of merino wool tops to use there'll also be plenty teas and/or coffee and home made cake of the week to keep you going.

Allergies to cats or indeed wool? Please note Heather has three cats (they’ll be elsewhere in the house during the workshops). Antihistamines are available but her workshops may not be for you.

Did you know?

Some say Noah invented felt? All that rain plus friction from animals hooves and humans feet on sheep fleeces in the Ark's hull created what we now call felt. Others that St Clement invent wet felt making when he popped some fleece inside his shoes to stop blisters when setting out on a mission. I'd say likely neither: beautiful pieces of felt dating from as early as 4th Century BC have been excavated from nomadic cultures in the Altai Mountains, Southern Siberia.
