Description

 

In this class I cover the technique of using “resist” in felt making to create a three dimensional object, in this case slipper boots.   Once you have learnt how to use “resist” in felt making there really is no limit to what you can make.   “Resist” is when you use a piece of flexible material that prevents the wool fibres from felting to itself.

 

Day 1:

On the first day you will be creating a template of your own foot from flexible plastic.  Choosing colours and laying out your wool and design.  Wetting down and beginning the rolling/felting process.

 

Day 2:

Second day you will be continuing with the rolling and felting process.  Then completing your project by moulding your slippers around your foot.

 

       

     

Yes we make them flat and joined together!
