Felted Pencil / Glasses Case

In this class we will use wet-felting techniques over a resist to make a seamless case with a magnetic clasp that could be used to store glasses, pencils, sewing kit and other items. I will show you how to lay out wool over a resist, blend wool colours to achieve a gradual colour change and you will have the option to decorate your case will silk fibres.

You will also learn how add magnetic clasp so the attachment is invisible and I will share how I make sure the 2 halves of the clasp line up on the finished case.

Class fee includes wool, decorative silk fibres and a magnetic clasp, as well as use of basic felting equipment.

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