Margaret River Felting Group
Learn the art of felting
Want to learn how to felt without the big $$ costs
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
A small fee will be required to cover room hire and depending on numbers should be $10- $15 a month.
Please email Rubi to register interest and don't forget to put what days/nights u prefer & times !
Beginners felting sessions
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 .
