Ever wondered what felt is and how it is created?
Canberra Region Feltmakers offers one day workshops introducing those new to wet felting to the basic skills needed to start creating your own beautiful felt pieces.
In Basics and Beyond you will learn about Merino, microns and mommie. Your tutor Lynne Sanders will guide you through techniques for laying out wool, wetting down, rolling, fulling and most importantly, how to tell when your felt is fully felted.
After introducing you to the magic of felt making, Lynne will assist you to create a unique project to take home.
We look forward to sharing the magic of felt making with you.
Lynne Sanders is a professional feltmaker based in Canberra. She has been felting for 17 years, has trained with many local and international tutors and sells her work at the Canberra Old Bus Depot Markets.
Lynne has a background in silk painting and machine embroidery (including a Certificate in Fabric Decoration from CIT Canberra). Her fine, felted wearables and scarves often incorporate these techniques with emphasis on design, drape and surface decoration.
