Advanced Wet Felting & Slow Stitching Workshop

Advanced Wet Felting and Slow Stitching Workshop   

Where: Sunday 29th October 9.30 am – 4.00pm

Venue:  The Country Women’s Association, Umina 3 Lansell Rd Toorak

All Welcome!

Immerse yourself in mindfulness and enjoy learning the art of Felting or Slow Stitching.

Come and enjoy a relaxing day with experienced CWA tutors Mary and Karen as they lead you into these fascinating crafts.

Both these classes emphasise the reuse of textiles and giving them a new lease of life.

Let’s do our bit to reduce the phenomenal amount of textiles that end up in land fill.

A great opportunity – both classes are running simultaneously so you can choose to work on one class all day or try your hand at both. Same cost!

Both classes will teach the basics of the techniques.


Members $130.00
Non-Members $150.00

Option 1:
Advanced wet felting – Nuno felting technique with Mary.

Nuno felting is the art of felting onto fabric using a loosely woven fabric and pure merino wool tops.

Mary will show you the technique of wet felting onto a silk scarf, how to add highlights and interesting textures to make your scarf distinctly unique. Scarf provided.

Option 2:  
Slow Stitching Picture with Karen

 This workshop will show you how to create a piece of embroidered work suitable to be framed, used as a wall hanging, an insert into a quilt or a cushion cover.

Using a recycled base, Karen will show you how to create a unique design from small bits and pieces of fabric, trimmings and simple embroidery stitches. A kit with all your requisites will be provided.

Just bring yourself!

And there’s more! The workshop price also covers Morning/Afternoon Tea and a light lunch prepared by renowned CWA cooks
