Exploring Raw Wool for Needle Felters 27.8.20
Exploring Raw Wool for Needle Felters 27th August 7pm - 9pm
Due to the requirement of posting out raw fleece samples, this workshop is for UK based residents only.
This online workshop is aimed at those who have already started their needle felted journey and are looking for ways to add diversity to their creations.
Rainy Williamson shares her knowledge and experience of raw wool from many years of working with wool and keeping her own sheep.
Prior to the start of the online workshop you will be sent a range of British sheep fleece to be referenced during the workshop. No preparation of the fleece is required.
Topics discussed will include:
Characteristics of raw wool
Identifying breed differences and characteristics
Cleaning and storing
Sourcing and identifying a sound fleece
Marketing benefits for small businesses
Practical design applications
The session is carried out online via Zoom, so no travelling, worrying about the weather or social distancing issues. An email link will be sent to you shortly before the workshop starts. You will need internet access along with a computer with a microphone and camera.
