MODERN WET FELTING AND BOTANICAL DYEING WORKSHOPS 2019


I run regular bespoke modern wet felting workshops for small groups and offer one to one tutorials in my studio in Abingdon. Each workshop is a 2/3-hour personalised class covering everything you need to know to get started with wet felting. We go through the basic principles of laying merino wool, controlling its thickness, creating texture, adding fibres and mixing colours. We also look at the materials you can use. You get plenty of one to one teaching and help over the course of the workshop and leave inspired to keep going at home.
