GET SCHOOLED: Fun with Felt at The Knit Cafe (May 24 & 25)

fun with felt

Felt Making for Beginners (Flat Felting, Nuno Felting, and 3D Felting)
sat may 24, and sun 25, 10am-1pm

What do you get when you mix a bit of water, with a wad of fluff and a little elbow grease? FELT-that’s what!!! Neither knitting nor crocheting is required for this class. In this two-day workshop students will be introduced to the ancient techniques of felt making. They will design and make their own piece of hand-felted cloth, a decorative bowl, a pouch or pocket (ideal for cell phones, ipods, or eyeglass case) and a 3D felted object. Students will be issued their very own felting kit so they can practice their new skills and make endless creations at home.

2 sessions, $60 for instruction and $25 for "felting kit" which includes all the tools necessary to make felt plus a piece of fabric for use in the "Nuno Felting" technique, and 125 grams of fleece in several colours - students may pick their own colour combinations.

Call to reserve your spot 416 533 5648 (KNIT)

The knit café is located at 1050 Queen St. West
