Immerse yourself in the resist method of wet felting and transform beautiful wool into a vessel of your choice. Jo will guide you through each stage of the process. You will leave the workshop with not only a complete 3D piece but also fully equipped with the skills to go on to create your own bags, hats, bags, phone cases and even more abstract artwork. All wool is supplied. Please bring an apron or wear clothes you don’t mind getting wet.
Please note: This is not needle felting
This workshop is suitable for those who previously attended Jo’s ‘An Introduction to Felt-Making’ workshop at Truro Arts or who have experience of wet felt making.
