Design and make your chosen slip case or vessel using a plastic resist to transform 2D to 3D. By repeatedly wrapping the resist in wool, wetting, felting, adding texture and pre-felted silks the desired artefact emerges - magic!

Suitable for all levels, working individually to suit your experience and ideas. This is the third of three independent, but progressive workshops with Barbara.

Focus on

  • Know your fleece, choices for 3d practical items.
  • Designing with plastic resist, scaling up to allow for shrinkage
  • Drawing out and laying wool finely and firmly around the resist
  • Adding decorative elements
  • Felting and fulling to achieve a well finished felt.

All materials and equipment supplied, including wool, silk fibres and pre-felts, soap and bubble wrap

You only need to bring: A towel, approx. 50 x 90 cm 

Cost $60 includes all materials and morning refreshments.
