This workshop will be focusing on the technique of Felting.

Felting is a method of textile production where the textile is produced by matting, condensing and pressing fibres together. Felt is a non-woven textile that is made by shrinking or matting fibres together to make an impenetrable fabric, that can be cut without fraying or degrading the edges. Felt can be made from all wool fibres and other animal fibres such as alpaca, cashmere, angora and even buffalo. The basic treatment is either by wet-felting the fibres using a felting solution or dry-felting using felting needles or an embellisher.

Participants will produce fabric samples using the technique of wet felting and dry felting during this workshop. Participants will experiment with mixing different colours and a variety of fibres together.
