Making beads, a picture or some set-off from felt brings you about the same pleasure like the spinning and weaving.
We attend to the felting also on our courses and you will learn not only how to select the wool, but also the factual felting methods here.
What you need for felting?
You will need only carded wool, wet and a soap for making felt bead or a picture.
If you want make p.e. a hat or slippers, you will need also the felting board or a scrub board.
Another popular method of making felt is needle felting. It is making felt by the dry way by the help of special needle.
You can string together both the methods of felting. You will make an artifact by the classical wet way and then you can decorate it by the help of the needle.
With reverse teeth felting needle [FNR] we can create fuzz effect on the finished felted surface (pulling fibers out of felt).
We can use white sliver or some natural shades for felting, from beige and brown to black, or the coloured wool, especially for the figurations and pictures.
