Starting with how to prepare wool fibres through sampling, you will then develop colour blending techniques and layering of fibres to enhance the felted surface. Learn to be confident in working with thin layers of wool fibres as you design and make fine felted cloth for lightweight gossamer scarves and neck pieces. This method of felt making will be explored
through tutor led sampling exercises
