Felt your own custom pair of slippers to wear on cosy winter nights! In this class we will start by making a pattern from your own foot. From here, layers of fibre, water and soap will magically transform into felt – with a lot of help from your own muscle power! On the second day students will cut and sew suede onto the slippers to create a long lasting sole. This workshop requires some hand strength and standing for extended periods of time. Not suitable for beginners.
Nuno Felted Scarf
Nuno Felting is the process of combining loose wool fibres with an open weave material to form a textile. In this full day class students, will make an original draping scarf from wool fibres and an assortment of open weave fabrics. We will explore different decorative elements such as the types of fabrics, exotic fibres, and wool. Previous felting experience is not required for this technique. All materials and felting supplies are provided.
Join EWG instructor, Carolyn Agopsowicz, on a felting adventure where you will create a one of a kind statement necklace. Over the course of this class, you will learn basic wet felting techniques, how to work with decorative stones & resists, and how to work with jewellery pliers and incorporate findings and other decorative elements into your felted work. Basic sewing and felting skills would be beneficial but are not required. All supplies will be provided.
