Felting Retreats

Our next Felting Retreat will be from Friday 5th to Sunday 7th April. Our felting retreats are always very popular and super-social with just as much chatting and sharing as felting!

Those who are staying overnight start gathering from after 5pm on Friday. Bring your dinner and favourite drink for Friday night.

Robin has generously offered to show us how she makes her cyanotype prints on Saturday morning.

·         Felted squares – with top layer being paj silk or other silk or cotton (or paper if you have experience with this) – cyanotype does not work directly on wool

·         Shapes/resists to create a design (like we’ve used for bleach dying) – although you can use leaves and flowers instead or as well

·         Latex or dish washing gloves

·         Panes of glass for holding down designs (like from old picture frames) and cardboard to put under the glass

·         A small plastic or glass container for mixing chemicals (eg small yoghurt container or shot glass)

·         Cardboard or a large sheet of paper that you can slide under your bed to keep your cyanotypes on before they are exposed to the sun

All other supplies will be provided.

Places are limited so please contact us or confirm your place with Jenny if you haven’t already.
