GET SCHOOLED: Beginner felt making classes at Shopgirls (January 10 &11)

Saturday January 10 and Sunday January 11, 2009
from 1:00pm - 4:00pm each day

Learn this ancient technique in unique modern ways!

By the end of this two-day workshop you will learn the basics of Wet Felting, including Flat Felting, Nuno Felting and 3D Felting.

Each student will also design and make their own piece of hand-felted cloth, a decorative felt bowl, a pouch or pocket (ideal for cell phones, iPods or even an eye glass case) and a 3D felted object.

This workshop takes place over two days with three hours of felting techniques taught on each day.

RSVP to or call 416-534-7467 to reserve your spot. Payment must be received in advance.

* The felting kit, available at the first class, is an additional $25 and includes: sponge, olive oil natural soap, felting mat, non-slip mat, small piece of firm plastic (to make pouches), fabric (silks and linens for Nuno Felting), 125 grams of wool (2-3 kinds/colours).

NOTE: A minimum of four students is required. If this number is not achieved, an alternate date will be provided. All workshops require full payment at time of sign-up.

Ticket Info: $80
