Margaret River Felting Group

Learn the art of felting

Want to learn how to felt without the big $$ costs

Expressions of interest are being taken now for Margaret-rivers first felting group.

The idea is to meet up once a month learn a new skill ,starting right at the beginning .

A beginners workshop will be held to get everyone up to speed and then it will be a mixed meeting where we all learn together .

If you are an experienced felter already "please " feel free to join and teach your skills to others .

Basically the only group close to MRiver is Bunbury and it's just too far for most of us to go especially those who work a 9-5 mon fri as it's on a Friday all day !!

My Goal is to run a day class & an evening one

Classes are to run out of the wash house at the community resource centre and rather than dictate times and days I'm asking people to register via email what days and times they would prefer and we will work from that .

A small fee will be required to cover room hire and depending on numbers should be $10- $15 a month.

Beginners felting sessions

Beginners felting will be run in two slots

1- basics of laying out & properties of wool ect

We will be laying the wool out and talking about the different techniques ect-

Everyone will lay out and make a couple of samples and have a go at a pre- felt

2- we will carry on from the laying out lessons and touch on Nuno felting and make another sample using our pre felts and talk about what's next when u guys join the main group.

Both classes will go for a min of two hours longer if your really keen !! The cost of these workshops will include a 500gr bag of merino wool to take home ( u will be using it during the workshop but as we are doing samples there will be plenty left over.

So it's $30 a lesson inc wool - basically I'm just wanting to cover the costs of room & wool .
