Spend a day creating presents or decorations using handcrafted feltmaking techniques. In this one-day class, Toni Peers will cover both wet and needle felting techniques that can be used to create decorations or presents. Handcrafted felt is made using pre-spun wool, the fibres are fused together to create felt either by force using a needle, or friction, heat and soap for the wet felted method, it is a wonderfully tactile craft. On this day you will learn how to needlefelt to create a robin, and other such decorations, which can stand alone or be joined together to create a Christmas wreath. If you prefer, you could spend the day making a handcrafted felted item for a loved one for Christmas – this might be a bag, phone cover, tea cosy – Toni will teach you how to make a hollow form using wet felting techniques so you don’t even need to sew it together. All materials are included.
