Felt Pockets & Purses Workshop

20 July - 20 July 2019

Come and create a beautiful seamless i-pad case, purse, glasses case or small bag.

In this one day course you will be able to learn about wool and its properties,  and experiment with colour and design.

The course tutor, Penny Dixon will take you through the felt making process step by step, showing you how to handle lengths of wool and then use the specialist resist techniques required to lay it correctly in order to create a colourful seamless felted pouch.

You will be able to take your wonderful creation home with you at the end of the day.

The course is suitable for beginners and improvers.

Full instruction and guidance is given and those with previous felting experience will be able to develop their skills in creating this piece.

A plastic bag may be useful for taking a damp piece of work home!

She is a member of the International Feltmakers Association and currently teaches at Mac Birmingham as well as other community venues.
