About This Class

Wool has a unique ability: when made into felt it shrinks.  Sometimes unintentionally, I’m sure we have all shrunk a jumper of two.  When this characteristic is used intentionally, differing rates of shrinkage can be turned into a method of shaping objects.  Working our way through the Trio of Pots we will learn how to manipulate and shape felt into structurally sound and beautiful objects.

Soosie Jobson

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.
