SATURDAY 6th NOVEMBER, 9.15-12.15am
The Winning Post Room, Newton Abbot Racecourse
Enjoy creating a beautiful, wet felted, scarf using vintage sari silk and merino wool with silk embellishment so that you will have a reversible scarf that is lovely on both sides.
Merino wool is soft and kind to the skin, and the silk comes in a variety of colours and designs.
You will learn to lay out the wool so that you can achieve the best drape effect.
This workshop is suitable for beginners and those with some felting experience.
All the materials you will need are provided within the cost. You will also have the chance to try using a ceramic palm washboard, making the rubbing stage quick and easy.
Participants need to bring:
An old clean bath towel to cover your table, and a smaller one for the rolling stage. All other equipment is provided.
Please wear a mask and if you are allergic to soap solution- a pair of disposable gloves.
