About your host

I am an experienced felt maker and lover of all things creative. I regularly run felt making workshops at XCHC, a creative community space in Christchurch.

What we’ll do

We'll have a chat about what you would like to make - items to choose from include a bowl, cell phone case, coin purse or felt landscape. After you choose what wool you like I'll demonstrate the felting process, then you'll get hands on into felt making. This process involves working with wool, soap and water to make a fabric that will be shaped into your final product. This is a fun and relaxing…

What else you should know

I don't provide food or drinks with this experience, but there is a great cafe on site! We will be working in a public co-working space, so other people may be working on different projects around us

What I’ll provide

Equipment
I will provide all the wool and felt making equipment needed to make your creation.
