Felted Pet Pod

Using wet-felting techniques you will make a super-cute, felted pot with personality. Choose your favourite animal or emoji and turn it into an adorable felted vessel.

Learn how to use prefelts to create your critter and how to cut and shape the felt to form the ears. To finish we will add fine details using needle felting.

Class fee includes wool and prefelts, as well as use of basic felting equipment.

This class is for adults, ideally with previous experience of wet felting over a resist. However, if you have not made felt over a resist before we can modify the design to make it more beginner-friendly by making the ears the same colour as the rest of the pod, like the sleepy orange tabby cat pot above.
