Make a Felt Gift Bag

June 12 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


During this workshop we will create a beautiful small felt gift bag using a resist. This is a method of making a 3d piece of fabric without sewing. We will use wool fibres, soap and water to create the bag. We can decide to embellish our bags with silk fabric or fibres, with spun wool, with prefelt (pieces of partially-made felt)….there are lots of possibilities to make your own original creation. Belinda Delany will guide you every step of the way. We can also add handles of your choice.

I will show you how to make a felt cord which makes a great handle – but you can also sew a canvas or leather strap onto your bag if you prefer.  This will be a fun class, suitable for beginners who will leave with a completed bag and the know-how to make another.

The course fee will include full tuition, tea, coffee and a light lunch. A materials list will be available on booking or will be available to purchase on the day.
