Felted Bowl Workshop

Using NZ Merino Wool and Silk Fibres

Join me at Pou Whakaaro, Whakatane, where you will find everything that you will need to hand form your own felted bowl with “marbled” detailing in your choice between four colour ways of hand dyed silk fibres.

I will lead you step-by-step through the process and at the end of the day, you will take home your own unique hand formed fibre art bowl.  During this workshop, you will learn the principals of fibre layout, felting around a resist and three-dimensional forming.

The cost includes:
A generous “bump” of softest New Zealand Merino Wool Fibre
Silk fibres – your choice between 4 stunning colour ways
Prior felting experience is beneficial, but not vital for this project.

What to bring: An apron (it’s not dirty work, but there is a fair amount of soapy water!), small pair of sharp scissors (I will have some available, but it’s often nice to have your own handy).

Lunch: There is a cafe on site, where you will be able to order lunch and a coffee. Alternatively, you are welcome to bring your own packed lunch if you prefer. We will take a short break at mid day to eat.

Note that the use of templates and other equipment is included in the price.  Templates and additional kits will be available for purchase, should you want to make more bowls after the workshop.  Eftpos will be available.

Class size will be limited to 12.
