Feltmaking workshops in the beautiful surroundings of Sheep’s Head, West Cork.
My felt making (wet felt) workshops are an opportunity to take a day out and relax and explore your creative side. They are designed to take you step by step through how and why wool felts, how much wool shrinks, what can be added as decoration and effects and what wool to use where. I guarantee you will have ample time to design, create and complete at least one finished piece by the end of the day.
Introduction to feltmaking
I will show you how to create a beautiful textured panel using different colours, shapes, fibres and gorgeous fabrics. At the end of the day you will be going home with a decorative piece, which you can either leave as it is, or with the help of a couple of stitches turn it into a book cover or, with added embellishment, into a unique art piece ready to be framed. € 75.- pp
