The Alchemy of Feltmaking

This event has passed.

Join Nicola Christodoulides for the first in a gentle workshop series where you will learn the ancient art of transforming unspun wool fibre into an immutable piece of fabric.

All levels of felting experience welcome, beginners especially so!

You will leave the workshop with a beautiful artist’s journal in a handcrafted cover wherein you can record your dreams, inspiring words, random memories, your weekly meal plan or to-do lists.
Learn how to calmly create a sheet of fine flat felt.

Although this workshop has the promise of an outcome, it is also a chance to take a moment and step out of our hurried world, to care-fully transform a material into something quite different, which can then be handstitched into a glorious garment for your journal.

Date: 23 Feb 2019
Time: 10am to 1:30pm
Venue: Natural Yarns at Imhoff Farm (near Kommetjie)
Cost: R450 (tea/coffee and materials provided)
Places limited to maximum of 6 participants.
