Craft Workshop Saturday 20th November 2021: Wet felting Introduction to picture making
Spend a day learning to wet felt to create beautifully crafted, unique pictures. You will be able to explore the possibilities of using felt for picture making. Your 2D felted projects could be later made into framed pictures, wall hangings, book covers, and bags.
Maximum Workshop: 4 People
Time: arrive for 10am start - finish 4pm
Venue: Craft Workshops, Grassroots Garden Centre (separate studio within the grounds), Stalbridge Road, Henstridge BA8 0SA
We will be making our wet felt picture projects and will be embellishing the finished felt so you can add depth, texture and detail.
Embellishments such as beads and buttons can also be sewn on by hand, embroidery stitched to add texture and details, as well as adding 3D needle felted details to your work. For example, adding needle felted butterflies, leaves, flowers etc.
This is a truly creative wet-felt-making day!
Suitable for complete beginners and those with some wet felting experience who wish to add to their knowledge and improve their skills.
We use as many ordinary household items as possible to make wet felt so there is very little you need by way of additional equipment to continue this versatile craft at home - just felting wool! For needle felting at home, you will need felting needles and a surface to work on such as a foam pad. These will be supplied for use while you are in the workshop.
All the other equipment will be supplied except an apron which you may like to bring. Please wear clothes suitable for crafting (wet-felting can get a bit damp but not very 'wet').
Wet-felting can be quite physically hard work so help is always available if you should need or want some extra oomph! and we adapt how we work to be fully inclusive.
You may want to do more work on finishing your picture after the workshop.
Hot and cold drinks are available throughout the session. Please bring lunch, snacks and any other refreshments which you would like which are appropriate for the length of workshop which you have booked.
