Felted Name Badges

In this class we will use wet-felting techniques to make a name badge for you (or a friend). I will show you how to lay out wool fibres, blend wool colours and how to securely attach your magnet or brooch pin.

Class fee includes your choice of wool colours and a range of coloured prefelts to choose from, as well as use of basic felting equipment.

This class is for adults, and is suitable for beginner and intermediate felt-makers.
