Another in the series of summer school workshops this week at the Bristol Folk House, this time felt making. Most of the group were completely new to felt making and came away with some amazing results.
No more classes planned this year at the moment, however I will be running an 8 week course in the new year at Backwell School. It's Monday evening 7 -9 pm and starts on 23rd Jan 2012 (half term break 13/2/12)
We began with a basic square of felt and then tried of variety of techniques including creating straight edges, pockets, nuno felt, cobweb, felt balls and tubes (for making buttons)
