To begin the day we'll talk about the principles of felting - laying out the wool tops, shrinkage, decoration and the process of felting itself. Then you can chose what you want to make and create a templete, if necessary, proceeding to create your chosen item.   If you want to you can create a flat piece of felt that can be used to make a wall hanging, cushion cover, journal cover, coasters, needle-case, small bag or other similar items. 

By the end of the class everyone will have created their own original piece and have learnt a wonderful traditional craft. This workshop is a great opportunity to enjoy handmade processes in a relaxing setting.
