want to know more about the felt-a-licious felting workshop? read on...
*there is no knitting involved! we'll be working with wool roving (thats the fluffy stuff pictured below). it gets layered, then agitated with water and soap and your hands to create FELT! (kind of like magic!)
*we will be posting all of the projects during the 'workshop' timeframe (nov 2-10), but you will be able to download (and save/print if you like) the instructions and work on the projects at your own pace - anytime up until the end of this year.
*you do not have to buy a kit to join in! you can gather your own wool roving (know any sheep?!), which can be found in knitting/fibre stores, craft stores and apparently even in walmart! you need about 60 grams/2 oz. of wool for the projects we have planned. 3+ colours would be good!
*if you do wish to buy a kit from nicole (the wool she sourced for us is amazing!), bear in mind that it will take at least a week to reach you if you live outside of australia.
(photo nicole sent me after shopping for our WOOL! YUM!)
*you will not need any other fancy supplies to felt with. eg a bowl, soap, bubblewrap, needle, thread and a few buttons.
*children love wet felting and this would be a great class to do with your child, and share the learning and ideas!
*the projects will all make a.w.e.s.o.m.e christmas gifts!
