Felting for Beginners with Pam de Groot from NSW
2 Day Workshop, Monday 3rd & Tuesday 4th July
This workshop is an excellent introduction to felting and if you are already a felter to dyeing your wools and silks. On day 1 you will play with dyeing wool sliver and silks in variegated random dye plus simple shibori. Once you have mastered the art of doing this you will, on the 2nd day, create your own scarf or wrap using the nuno technique which is the method of felting onto fabric.
Walk away with a completely unique addition to your wardrobe.
Skill level: All welcome
