We’ve been working on a new venture for The Felting and Fiber Studio … online Workshops and Classes! The first class we’re offering is “Wet Felting Workshop for Beginners“. The first one starts on Sunday 1st March 2015. It’s a 3 week course developed to give absolute beginners a good foundation on which to develop their wet felting skills. Not only are there the expected ‘How to Felt’ instructions, but there are also simple exercises designed to show what happens when wool felts under different conditions so you can control the outcome. There is also lots of info on using different types of wool and animal fibres, tips for inexpensive tools, alternate techniques etc. For more info on the course, have a look here: http://feltingandfiberstudio.com/wet-felting-for-beginners/
We have lots of ideas in the pipeline and some classes are in development, keep an eye out on our Classes page for further info. We are also hoping other fibre artists will ‘hire’ the Studio site and the Class support forum as an online venue to teach their own classes from. We haven’t figured out the details for this yet, it’s still early days, but it won’t be expensive, we just want to cover hosting costs and media storage expenses; our aim has always been to support the community, not make our fortunes 🙂 Feel free to contact us if you’re interested.
So, to celebrate the launch of the Workshop, we’re giving away 4 free class places. The giveaway is for the 3 week course, you just need the supplies and felting equipment listed on the class information page. All you have to do to win is leave a comment in reply to this post. We would really appreciate it if you would blog about it or share the info on Facebook or other social media. We’ll announce the winners on February 6th and contact you with the details. If you’d like to sign up for the course, please use the Contact Form at the bottom of the Class Info page. Good Luck!
