We are excited to offer a brand new comprehensive eight week Felting Course. Hosted by Treacle, the sessions are being run by the Yvonne Bailey, a textile tutor with a wealth of experience and knowledge, and are suitable for both absolute beginners and those who wish to refresh and broaden their knowledge of the process of making felt by hand.
Covering essential felting skills, we will teach you about drawing with wool fibre, creating textural surfaces and making felt balls and cords for jewellery. The course will include the techniques of creating seamless 3D structures that can be used for bags, hats or sculptural objects. By week 6, you will be able to prepare and blend coloured wool fibres, make samples of felt incorporating simple designs and mark making, and create textures using a variety of threads and fibres.
The final two sessions of the course will be for you to create a project of your choice using your new skills.
The course is being held on Monday mornings on the dates listed below in our lovely upstairs room at Treacle in Morpeth (10am-12noon) on:
All materials and refreshments are provided for the first six sessions.
Materials for your chosen project in the final two sessions are not included and can be purchased from Treacle once you have decided on your chosen project with guidance from Yvonne.
