7. Make a woolly planter and learn the basics of 3D Wet Felting
This private Live online version of my 3D wet felting workshop needs a minimum of three people to run and for me to post you kits; please bear this in mind when booking. It takes a bit longer than the in person workshop; about 3 and a half hours. But I also recommend allowing for a 15 minute break half way through. It could be run over a couple of afternoons or evenings. Please message me if you're looking to join a group. On this workshop you’ll use a variation of 2D wet felting to create a small vessel/planter. Heather will post you a kit with the materials and some of the equipment you need. Any other equipment you will be able to find around your home. The pre-class notes explains all. On the workshop you’ll be guided through how to use the resist, the layering and felting techniques to make and shape your work. Once you've mastered this you can make slippers, bags, cat caves, hats, hot water bottle covers, lamp shades, purses, phone covers, and the list goes on ... I usually run this workshop with a 15 minute break roughly half way through. There are a maximum of six participants to enable me to see what you're all doing. Keeping it small means I have plenty of time for one on one attention. Processing the fibres is made up of a series of repetitive actions. Many people find this relaxing and some a stress buster. But, the final stages of wet felt making can be quite vigorous and very hands on. If you have arthritis or a similar condition in your hands you may find parts of the process more challenging. This does not mean you will not be able to undertake this workshop, just that it may take you a little longer to felt your work. But if you're feeling at all unsure please message me.
