An informal weekend group that is planned to run once a month with the focus on learning the basics of felting together as a group. The sessions will be designed in a way where we can exchange ideas, skills and techniques and seeing just how far our creativity can take us. To start we will concentrate on creating a base fabric before moving on to more complex ideas.
Some materials will be provided such as merino tops in a variety of colours and other fibres, but we recommend that you come prepared with either felting needles or a wet felting kit plus a good sized towel, dependent on which style of felting you are interested in. Felting needles, sponges, mats, bamboo rolls and olive oil soaps can all be found easily on the internet and at competitive prices.
The class is suited for ages 10 to adult, however anyone under the age of 18 will need to be accompanied by an adult.
INTRA is within walking distance of Rochester train station and Chatham bus station. Please note, our venue is a rather beautiful Art Deco building with some accessibility issues. If you have specific access or disability requirements and would like to participate in the event please let us know at least 5 days before the event date so that we can do our utmost to resolve any potential problems to accommodate. There are ample “pay and display” parking spaces along the high street as well as a short stay & long stay “pay and display” car park near the new Rochester Riverside development.
