Felt Making

Felt Making

Details

Create colourful felted fabrics inspired by the artworks our collection display A Contemporary Collection.

Using natural and dyed merino wool, rolling mats and everyday materials like soap and towels, families will be introduced to the process of felt making. Experience everything from manipulating dry fleece to felting pieces into a fused fabric artwork.

Making felt can be tiring on arms and wrists, but you can take your time and we are here to help. If you have weaker wrists then please let us know and we will make sure you get help at this stage. We use a very watered down soap solution, so let us know if you have a sensitivity to this.
