About This Class

There are as many ways to felt as there are felters!  And as long as you make good quality felt it doesn't matter.  But where to start?  In this Class we will discuss the Three Stages of Felting then learn three different methods for those stages.

Once you have mastered them you can chose which ones suits you best and then develop your own techniques as you go.

Learn how to make felt using three different methods:

  • Traditional Hand Roll & Toss
  • Sand & Tumble
  • Roll & Tumble
  • Plus download Recipes & Choices

This Class is a great start for beginners or those who have dabbled but would like some more technique and is a stepping stone to my other more technical classes like the Felted Cactus Garden and The Reef Dwellers.

This is an excellent tutorial for beginners to felt making (like me!). Soosie is obviously a very experienced felt maker, and she has distilled a wealth of good information into this concise tutorial. Soosie's voice is clear and she speaks in a way that is easy to understand. I have yet to make the samples. I will make them, as it's clear from the video that these are necessary to understanding the properties of the particular wool in use (as the properties vary) in order to achieve a predictable result.
fantastic, clear instructions - excellent! I shall watch for more from this tutor :)
thanks Soosie, great easy way to get started into the amazing world of felt!

Felt Artist, Teacher, Author & Historian

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.
