Shibori Felting

Shibori Felting

A fascinating one day workshop combining knitting and felting, inspired by the ancient Japanese technique of Shibori. Learn how to add texture by tying and stitching your knitted fabric, add colour by stitching on the surface and threading fibres and fabric through your knitting. Calculate the rate of shrinkage, using a washing machine,with a variety of shrinking and non shrinking yarns, so that you can then design your own projects at home.
