When to use bubble wrap, when to use a rug liner, when to use a drop-cloth or a sheet in felt making? Have you ever felted a piece and you thought it wasn’t successful? Did the silk not stick to the wool? Did you cut the wrong side of the slippers? Are the edges of the felt ruffly and uneven? Did the embelishements separate from the felt? Did the design not turn out the way it was planned? Have you ever started a project but did not really have the time to finish up?
In this workshop the instructor gathered a variety of felt-saving techniques, that are ususally the highlights of different workshops. Several tools and techniques will be introduced for troubleshooting accidents of all kinds, that might happen during felt making.
Bring your unfinished/unsuccessful piece(s) to the class. We’ll group the items with similarities and discuss all the possibilities to save the piece(s) and give it/them a new life. After the group discussion everyone get’s to work on their own, with more one-on-one counseling. We’ll take photos of the projects at the begining and at the end of the class.
