Event description

Description

You are invited to come play with wool and make a beautiful, cozy felted cat cave, of your design, for your favourite feline! Please contact me for more information. Thank -you!

*****This workshop is for intermediate to advanced felters.**********

It is required that you have some wet felting experience, especially with rubbing and rolling. This workshop is more physically demanding than my other workshops. It involves a lot of wool, that will have to be felted firmly. It is not difficult, but it is a specific process, and it will be a busy day. This is a very satisfying and rewarding project.

If you have not wet felted before you should take my Felted Landscape class first. Or any wet felting class that involves rolling. If you would like to discuss this with me, please contact me.


*****This class will have limited space. ******


Cost including tax and materials:

$155 for New Students

$140 for Returning Students (if you have taken one of my workshops in the past two years)

Registration fees (4%) will be added during check out.

CLASS DESCRIPTION:

Each participant will make a large felted wool cat cave or house, of your design, that your cat will love. If you have two cats they will wrestle over it, and you may need to make another one! You will learn to evenly lay out wool fibres in several layers, over a flat resist. This method produces a hollow 3 dimensional object. These techniques can then be used to make many other things, such as bags, hats, pillow covers, hollow sculptures, vases, bowls, etc.

We will then learn how to wet felt, shape, and finish your project. If there is time, we may add a simple needle felted design to your project (such as the black trees on the cave in the picture), but that will not be the focus or the priority of this workshop. We will be focusing on learning about resist felting, on accounting for shrinkage, and on producing a durable, strong, well felted item.

All materials and supplies are provided for this workshop, except Students must bring:

1. 4-5 Large Bath towels

2. Small sharp scissors

3. 3 large pieces of small-bubble, bubble wrap. At least 30” x 36” each.

4. “Stuffing”, for shaping your cat cave to dry. Can be collected plastic shopping bags, or bubble wrap, etc, more details will follow.

5. Optional: Table risers, to raise your table to counter height. Much easier height for rolling and working when standing. ($12 at Canadian Tire)

Each cat cave requires over a pound of wool fibre, which is included. You will have many colours to choose from, as well as silk, curls and other surface embellishments. All wet felting, and needle felting supplies and the resist pattern will be provided, but you can of course bring your own if you wish.

You may choose to pay online here through Paypal or with a Credit Card. (Select the PayPal option)

Or select the “Pay by Check” option if you wish to send an Etransfer to Tuckamoor@gmail.com.

Please contact me if you would like to pay by cash or cheque. Registration is not complete until payment has been received.

You will receive an email a few weeks before the workshop to confirm details and answer questions, but please feel free to contact me at any time.
