Beginner’s workshop in felting

Organised by the Designers Society of Slovenia


On Monday, May 27th, at 5 pm, you are invited to join us in RogLab for a beginner’s workshop in felting.  At the workshop, you will learn the wet felting technique and get acquainted with the basic materials and accessories needed for this process.

You will learn how to make balls, snakes, flowers or coasters; you can use these balls and the other semi-finished working products to create jewellery: rings, earrings, bracelets, brooches, etc. All the products will be made out of wool fibres with the additional help of water and soap.

The beginner’s workshop will last for three hours and is suitable for anyone over the age of 3. No previous knowledge is necessary. The price of the workshop for children is 10 euro, for adults 15 euro.
