Skill Extension Program – Three dimensional felt

Join Jean and Sue to learn how to felt around a resist.  A ‘resist’ is simply a physical barrier that keeps layers of wool apart and stops them felting to each other, and is the main way (though not the only way) to create a three-dimensional shape in felt.  In this session you will learn how to felt around a resist and how to full and block felt to make a robust three-dimensional object. Tips and techniques will be shared to ensure even distribution of wool without ridges, lumps and holes! You will also learn how to form your felt into a 3D form that is firm and holds its shape when dry. You will make one small 3D sample - eg small vessel or phone case.  After this session you will have the skills needed to tackle a larger project such as a bag or hat
