This workshop is held in the Maker Workshop at the Arts Centre, located in the School of Art building, on the corner of Rolleston Ave and Hereford St.
In this workshop Simone Bensdorp of Wild Felt will teach you how to make felt slippers 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 to make their own clothing.
You will design and make your own slippers to fit your feet and leave with the skills to continue felting at home.
Please bring 2 towels and a bar of soap, all other materials will be provided.
This is a one day course (we will take a break for lunch), so please bring any water and snacks/meals you may need.
Please note: This workshop is for adults only please, as it is not suitable for children.
There are 6 places available in this workshop.
Bookings are essential, non-refundable and non-transferable. We do, however, understand that things come up and try and accommodate people to the best of our ability. This can include moving people to another class or a refund - but please be aware that this is reliant on us filling the original spot.
This is because all of our pricing, and our efforts to keep costs as low as possible while still paying the tutors a fee commensurate with their experience and allowing them to cover the costs of living, is based on running these classes with a certain number of participants.
The price covers a portion of the: tutor's wage, workshop rent, materials & the labour to collect them, tools & their maintenance, electricity, insurance & other overheads. We are working to keep workshop prices as low as we possibly can.
