Series – Multi-ribbed Resists & The Felted Cactus Garden
I have been obsessed with Cacti & Succulents since I was a small girl. I love the structure and shape, and the magnificent unexpected blooms that appear often at night. It was only a matter of time that I would make them from felt. Join me in this workshop to create your own Cactus whilst learning multi-ribbed resist technique. This method of making resists will change the way you think about 3D felt making, and we’ll learn interesting things about Cacti along the way!
- Resist and template theory & design
How to makie a 3D object without any stitching plus best practices and materials to use.
- Complex wool laying
In situ versus prelaid techniques and uses.
- A variety of felting methods,
There are as many ways to make felt as there felters!
Make a beautiful Barrel Cactus in one piece from wool, or change up the colour scheme and make a gorgeous sculpture using the same technique.
Resources provided in the Project:
- Workspace practices
- Materials list
- The 3 stages of felting
- Shrinkage Rates

I’m Soosie Jobson a Fremantle based, felt & textile artist, author and historian. I have been an Educator for 30 years holding a Bachelor of Education, and have taught all kinds of things in the business and tech world but now I love to teach creative arts. The path through my creative life has taken me through many different media, but my main love is felting.
For the past 15 years I have dabbled with all forms of felting winning awards and prizes along the way, but I always come back to the sculptural side which is perfectly paired with some of my other obsessions; Coral Reefs, and Cactus Gardens to name a of few.
