Skills Extension – Flaps & Fins
In this workshop we will explore different ways of making felt flaps and fins, and how they can be used to make dramatic features on your felt, or can form flaps on bags and purses. Participants will explore several different methods for making flaps and fins on their sample piece, and will develop the skills and confidence to add flaps and fins to other felt projects.
Participants will make a sample piece of quality felt.
All the felting equipment is supplied. Participants can bring their own wool or purchase a sample pack on the day for a cost of $5, so you just need to bring along a towel and your enthusiasm.
These classes are designed for inexperienced felters, or anyone wanting to refresh their skills or learn a new felting technique. They are ideal for people who have completed the Feltwest beginners workshop and are keen to learn more, or gain the skills and confidence required to undertake a more advanced felting workshop.
Extension classes are kept small to provide a lot of 1:1 support to participants in a relaxed and helpful environment. The sessions will focus on creating one or more samples on a specific technique.
