Magical Slippers with Sharn Bruere
a workshop with Sharn Bruere
Close your eyes for a moment and imagine warm honey being drizzled over you brain. Relaxing right? Now imagine getting home from a long day, kicking off your hard shoes, and the same relaxing feeling pouring over you as you slip into your super cosy 100% wool slippers made just for you by you.
Come learn the magical art of felted wool slipper making.
Sharn will take you through the entire process in six easy to follow steps – from resist making to sole options. By the end of the workshop you will have made a beautiful pair of slippers and will be able to share the magic by making a pair for everyone you know.
Sharn is a town planner by trade and wool felter at heart. She started her wool felting journey making felted wool baby shoes. She now takes custom orders for ladies slippers through her website Woolly Wombat. She has made hundred of pairs of wool felted slippers using the wet felting technique. Through the making of each pair she has perfected the art, streamlined the process and made all of the mistakes (so you don’t have to!). She has written an e-book on how to make felted wool slippers and knows all the tips and tricks to complete a pair of beautiful and magical slippers.
