The ancient craft of wet felt making is simple to learn and offers a myriad of creative possibilities. You will begin by mastering the basic principles, laying out layers of wool fibres and felting them into a piece of non-woven fabric using only your hands and warm, soapy water. Resist work offers the opportunity to create seamless, hollow 3D objects and you will use this technique to create a simple pot in felt before applying these skills to your main project, which might be a hat, a bag, a cushion cover or a pair of slippers.
