Bags are challenging in design and can be complicated in felting therefore this is a project you can learn the most about constructional felt making. But the biggest challenge is, how to add depth to a “felted pocket” to make it more functional.

Bags have to have enough pockets, the right closures, the right size, the right depth, the seamless strap etc. Come and design your own bag and learn:

  • how to make the template
  • how to enlarge it to the right size
  • how to mix different qualities of wool fibers for the best result
  • how to work around several resist templates to make several pockets
  • how to add depth to a bag and shape it in 3D
  • how to attach straps and embellishments to your bag
  • how to choose the right type of closure
  • how to full and shape the bag perfectly

On the first day of the workshop we’ll make various samples to master different techniques of adding depth to a bag. Then you’ll design your very own bag that fits perfectly your needs. By the end of the workshop you’ll have a unique bag designed to your personal needs and all the skills you need to create more independently!
