By Bettina Hockey
in the Deviot Hall

bag, pouch, book cover or egg cosy’

‘Felted jewellery – design your own necklace and earrings out of felted beads’
Sunday 28 August 2011, 10am – 4pm
Felting with a resist
We start with a hands-on introduction on how to make your own felt pouch for a variety of uses.
The main project will be to design and felt your own bag, clutch, hot water bottle cover, book cover or egg cosy.
You will felt different shaped beads and ropes which are then incorporated into your own design of a necklace, bracelet and pair of earrings.
Felting is quite physically demanding so you need to be able to stand for extended periods of time and be able to rub/roll the wool as it felts.
Cost of each workshop $55 - which includes all you need for the day’s felting
(You will have to bring your own special buttons or glass beads if you want to add these to your felted pieces.)
The course fee includes a $15 deposit, which has to be paid by 3 July to secure your spot.
Please RSVP by Friday 24 June.
Be quick, so you can save yourself one of the popular spots. Limit of 10 people per workshop, minimum number of 5.
