Feltmaking
by Chris Branch

Hoylake Parade Community Centre

Sunday 16th July 2017 1. 30pm

Tickets: £10

All materials will be provided including a hard backed journal at a cost of £5 payable in cash on the day directly to the tutor Chris Branch

 

Feltmaking

Feltmaking is far more than just a practical craft; its rhythmic repetitive process is,  I find, beyond relaxing; it can change your mood and clear your mind. The simple methods date back 4000 years. Wool fibres become firm structured fabric which can hold three dimensional forms.

In this workshop you will learn the felting skills to complete a unique A6 size felt journal.

Beware though, felting is addictive, the tactile nature of the fibres used will seduce you back time and again!
