You’ll learn to create a seamless felt item e. g. a pouch, a pair of wrist cuffs or a vessel.

Then the fluffy soft wool fibres will be transformed into a firm, felted useful item.
It’s great fun to experience the process of wet felting. Craft experience and basic felt experience are welcome. If you are new to wet felting it is useful to first participate in a beginner wet felt workshop. If wet felting is new to you but you have craft experience, then I recommend to create a felt item like a pouch.

In case you would like to felt a cover for a mini hot water bottle, then basic felt experience is expected and the price for the workshop would be an extra £5, which means £32 for the workshop, incl. mini hot water bottle.
