11. Collages and Paintings Using Pre-Felt
This Live online version of my pre-felt workshop needs a minimum of TWO people to run and for me to post you a kit; please bear this in mind when booking. Please message me if you're looking to join a group. On this online workshop you'll use sharp scissors to cut and place different colours of pre-felt atop an A4* size pre-felt background (or two A5*). Once your design is complete we’ll use wet felt making techniques to bring your cut pre-felt together into the finished piece without the need for glue or a single stitch! Exactly what is pre-felt? It's partially processed felt, somewhere between the loose fluffy wool fibres and fully fused felt fabric. It differs from craft felt in that it needs to be further worked to create a finished product. Pre-felt’s "part cooked" state, it's propensity to be cut into clean crisp shapes coupled with its tendency to better keep its shape during processing make pre-felt perfect to use to create collage style imagery. In your kit you’ll receive a selection of pre-felt pieces in various colours and sizes plus the A4 background, an A4 sheet of tracing paper, net, chunk of olive oil soap and a sheet of bubble wrap (if you haven’t got a large enough piece waiting for recycling). Once you’ve booked you’ll need to contact me to let me know what colour background you want to use (a choice of three: natural, blue or plaster). I can also signpost you to various inspiration to get you started. Developing the pre-felt into felt is made up of a series of repetitive actions. Many people find these relaxing and some a stress buster. But, the final stages of wet felting can be quite vigorous and is 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 fully felt your work. Please note during the wet felting process your work will shrink. Pre-felt tends to shrink less than handmade wet felting. By how much varies considerably for lots of reasons including the structure of the pre-felt and the technique of the maker. I find a general rule of thumb is between 5-10%. These figures rise to 10-30% for completely hand made wet felted work.

12. 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.
