The Felted Cactus Garden with Soosie Jobson

2 Day Workshop - Monday 3rd & Tuesday 4th July

Soosie has been obsessed with Cacti & Succulents since she was a small girl.  She loved the structure and shape, and the magnificent unexpected blooms that appear often at night.  It was only a matter of time before she would make create them in felt.

Join Soosie for a two day workshop to create your own Cactus whilst learning multi-vaned resist technique. This method of making resists will change the way you think about 3D felt making, and we’ll learn interesting things about Cacti along the way!

Skills to be covered: resist and template theory & design, complex wool laying and a variety of felting methods.

Skill level: All welcome as long as you know how to make felt.

Kit cost: 93.50

Kit contains superfine 18.5 micron hand dyed Merino wool for 1 Cactus, patterns and resist material, beads, and more. 
Please choose between a Barrel Cactus and San Pedro Cactus when booking.

Please view the PDF to see the different styles.
