Wet Felt Making and Silk Paper Making Workshop
A day exploring natural fibres to create felted fabric and silk paper, in the morning we will work with merino tops which are soft and delicate to make a strong felted fabric with the addition of water and friction – magic !
In the afternoon we will work with fine silk fibres to create a light, delicate paper with inclusions that can be used as a basis of further textile projects, embroidery or displayed as artwork.
Suitable for beginners, no experience necessary, ideal if you have a love of textures, natural fibres and colour.
