Shibori Felting

Shibori Felting

Find out all you need to know about hand knitting for felting in your washing machine, in this workshop, covering the basic of felting techniques. Once you’ve learnt all the technical information you need to understand the process, you’ll try your hand at the Japanese embellishing technique of Shibori. You’ll see how to add texture to your felting by tying in marbles, pleating and stitching and adding non felting yarns and cloth. In the workshop, you will knit and felt at least two swatches and take away a pattern to work on at home. With all these exciting new skills, you’ll be able to start designing and adapting patterns for yourself. This workshop is suitable for those who can already knit and follow a basic pattern.
