Felted Vessels and Hanging Pods workshop

On this course you will explore the techniques of seamless 3-dimensional felt making; producing sculptural vessels and hanging pods. Using a variety of wool and feature fibres, soapy water and lots of elbow grease, you’ll start the day by creating a small textured vessel to understand the process of using a resist. You’ll then move on to making and incorporating felted cords and features to create a suspended pod.

For felt makers with some experience, there’ll be opportunity to explore using stitching or additional resists to create sculptural forms and multiple layers.
