You will spend the day creating an array of felted jewellery using a selection of wonderful colours of merino fleece. Sarah will demonstrate a variety of techniques, which will enable you to create your own some beautiful pieces to take home. Whether it’s a felt necklace, earrings or rings you will learn how to manipulate the fibres to produce loops, cords and pockets.
All materials necessary for the day will be provided but if you have a special bead, button or stone that you wish to incorporate then do bring them along. During the day you will learn lots of tips to help you finish that special and unique piece.
