Wednesday 15 December, 10am-12pm, Craft Opportunities: Felt-bowl making with Simone Bensdorp (Community Service Card holders)

This class is held at our Arts Centre workshop, which is located upstairs in the Boys’ High building at 28 Worcester Boulevard.

Vaccination requirement: Anyone 12 and over attending our workshops at any level of the traffic light system must be fully vaccinated. Please bring proof of vaccination (My Vaccine Pass), to show at the start of your workshop. More details about how we are creating a safe space for you in our workshops that are held within an open public setting can be found HERE.

This Craft Opportunities workshop has been made free/low cost only for Community Service and SuperGold "Combo" Card holders by the support of funding from Creative New Zealand. You will be asked to show your card at the start of the workshop, so please ensure you bring it with you. Regular SuperGold Cards are not accepted, it must be a "Combo" card with CSC number on the back. Any costs charged for these programmes are only for materials. Cash donations on the day will be very welcome but are not expected.

There are very limited places in these workshops, so please only book if you are sure you can make it on the day.


In this workshop Simone Bensdorp of Wild Felt will teach you how to make a felt bowl using natural, undyed, New Zealand wool and traditional felting techniques.

Wool felt-making is the oldest known way to make fabric, simply by combining wool, soap and water. This handmade product requires no fancy machines or chemicals, it is a simple practice that anyone can learn and use.

You will design and make your own bowl and leave with the skills to continue felting at home.
 
Please bring one towel, all other materials will be provided. It is also a good idea to bring a spare bag for your towel and bowl as they may still be wet after the class.

Please note: This workshop is for adults only please, as it is not suitable for children.

Minimum numbers are required for the class to run.

Bookings are essential.
