The Loom Shed are happy to welcome Belinda Delany back for 2023. In this workshop you will learn how to make a pair of cosy wrist-warmers, perfect for autumn and winter weather, or even a handmade Christmas gift.
We will use wet felting techniques to create our own unique pair of wrist warmers using merino wool and silk. Belinda will share both wet felting and nuno-felting techniques (where wool and silk are combined to make a new fabric). During the day, learn how to felt around a resist to produce a seamless pair of wrist-warmers. We can incorporate some pleating into our wrist warmers to create interesting effects; and we can embellish our creations with pre-felts, fibres and wool locks.
This workshop is suitable for both beginners and those with felting experience.
We’ll send you a list of equipment you’ll need to bring, these are things that you’ll have in the house.
We’ll be having one of our Loom Shed lunches, and there will be plenty of tea, coffee, biscuits and cake!
