Learn the traditional and modern techniques of felt making. You will be able to create designs of your own as a starting point for your felts, building up a library of samples. You will make two items, an aesthetic and a functional item. We look at stitching into felt and you will learn how to dye your own materials to use. It is a thorough and enjoyable introduction to setting out on making felt pieces of your own. No experience is necessary for this one-year course.
