Creekside Crafters go from strength

Felting, in all it’s different forms seems to have caught everyone’s imagination.

On a zoom session on Thursday Sue F, Linda and Cheryl D tackled the art of 3D felting and came up with amazing first attempts. Not easy to interpret exactly what is required when working remotely, ‘feel the quality’ comes to mind when instructed to lay the fibres – how thick, do I fan them out, where some questions. It is a long process, taking nearly three hours and pretty energetic, the last process is more like an upper body workout, rolling each side of the nearly finished item four hundred times on each side, all part of the ‘felting process’

Another session will be held in the New Year for another group of enthusiasts.
