We can offer felt making workshops at our studio in Bathurst for individuals or small groups.

In a short session you could learn to make a flat piece of felt and can experiment with using different colours and blends of fibres, including merino wool, alpaca, silk, soya bean fibre, mohair and English long wool breeds of sheep, You will get a feel for the different fibres and how they can be made to work together to form an integrated fabric, including incorporating patterns or designs into the felt. This process is also ideal for children to get involved with.

In a  longer session, or through multiple sessions, we can facilitate in the making of more elaborate, three dimensional pieces, such as a bag, hat, scarf or pair of slippers; or a more elaborate art piece incorporating different techniques such as cobweb or nuno felting.

We can also offer spinning lessons for those who want to learn to use a traditional spinning wheel to create your own luxury yarns.

Please contact us for more details or to make a booking.

We may also be able to organise a workshop or demonstration at a venue of your choice, such as a school or workplace.
