Materials List

First rule in Studio Detritus – don’t buy anything! If you don’t have something on the list bring extra of something else and do a swap with another participant. Bring your entire studio – this is a workshop where more is more and is much better.

To make the most of these samples bring a variety of materials, whether it is fabric or fibres, remember anything goes. If unsure we can always give it a go.
Wool – Bring what you have. But, if you don’t have any “fresh” wool – wool that can be easily laid - then please buy some, 100gm (approx. $15-$20) would be enough for quite a few samples. But! Bring your old wool as that can also be used. Any colour, any type, any micron.
Silk – at least some pieces of various silks like mesh, fine chiffon, paj, tissue, habotai etc I will have a scrap bag but a couple of pieces about 30cm x 30cm would be great. Why different kinds? You get different effects.
Fabric & Fibres – all of your scrap or leftover pieces. All types – synthetics, cotton, silk, shiny, metallic, paper – feltable (wool will penetrate) and non feltable (wool won’t penetrate) we have a purpose for both.
Felt & Prefelt - scraps and leftovers – for example past projects that you’re not happy with – we can cut them up! They can be on any felting scale from weak prefelts all the way to mega fulled.
Bits & Bobs – in other words treasures, maybe a bead or a button. Or ribbon, cord, string things you might not associate with felting. Something that might create a texture.
Resist Material – just scrap bits, remember we are working small. There will be a sharing bag with small pieces available.
Felting Gear. - Your normal equipment - whatever you use to make felt, but don’t forget - plastic or bubblewrap to cover your table and to handle the samples. A bucket for wet samples, 2-3 towels. Rechargeable sanders are allowed but we are working small so rolling and hand rubbing should suffice.
Other Equipment
Sharp scissors, needle and strong thread – like waxed linen or fine string - if you wish to do the Shibori shaping
Pen & notebook or Tablet or Smart Phone – or all of them.

Anything else you like!
