Felting Courses

Felt Workshops with Astrid Adler

Introduction into Felting

Wet and dry or needle- felting with different high quality wools, their uses for different works. You will learn a range of techniques by felting small objects like a ball, puppet, snake and a piece of fabric.

The ancient craft of felting known to us from the booties of the people of the Aran Islands to Mongolians, felting their tents called yurts, taken into the 21st century with needle- and nano-felting. It enjoys since years a revival all over the world with new creations and techniques constantly added. People less talented with their hands can achieve easily good results as well.

5 2-hour sessions.

The Group Blanket

Groups from 4 persons up can felt a blanket together. Excellent very personal gift for example Babies, made from the softest of Marino wools. This can be done in a workshop during several hours on one day. Time open to appointment. Costs depending on size of blanket. Floor rags or wall hangings are popular as well.
