MAKING A SMALL BOWL AND DECORATIVE EASTER EGGS: WET FELTING AND NEEDLE FELTING WORKSHOP

with Jay Kendall of Knitwit Originals

7.00-9.30pm (2 ½ hrs) at Brighton Road Baptist Church, Horsham

 

Jay Kendall of Knitwit Originals is back with us by popular demand after the successful Christmas Decorations workshop in November. This time she is going to show us how to make a small vessel or bowl (approx. 6” wide by 5” high) using the wet felting technique. You will use merino wool fibres and some silk fibres all from a range of pastel colours. Wet felting is a wonderfully tactile art which allows you to build shapes. Jay will then show us how to needle felt some small easter eggs from the same fibres and how to needle felt a simple decorative pattern on them to place inside the bowl. The bowls would also make a lovely gift filled with sweets or even buttons. For more details on what needle felting is please see our previous post here.
