Wet Felting or Needle Felting Workshop                      
Saturday 25 April 2020

10.00 am – 12.30 pm
At Nettle Hill Conference Centre,Brinklow Road, Ansty, Coventry CV7 9JL
Cost: £30 per person including materials  
Tutor: Virginia Murphy
Please book in advance   In this workshop you can choose either wet felting or needle felting - please see descriptions below:                 
Wet felting is a method of producing felt from wool and other animal fibres.  Warm soapy water is applied to layers of wool tops.  Repeated agitation and compression causes the fibre to hook together to create a single piece of fabric.    Using a choice of colours you can create lovely pieces – either by actually creating as you go or by experimenting with colour.    
Please bring:  a wooden rolling pin ( a piece of doweling of same size would do), a large towel (to absorb water from your felt as you are working), pictures to inspire you.

Needle felting is a process using a barbed needle to mat the woollen fibres onto a piece of felt instead of using soapy water and rolling wool to create a piece of felt (as used in wet felting).  Once felting is completed you will be able to  hand or machine embroider on top to further enhance the design.  You may not have time to complete your design during the session but will be well on your way to creating a beautiful piece of art.  There will be a machine embroidery demonstration at the end of the session using dropped feed dogs.

Please bring:

  • any pictures that inspire you 

Refreshments provided.  Please email Virginia on virginiamurphy53@yahoo.co.uk or

telephone 07833353872 to book.  £10 deposit required per person (non refundable but transferable).
