Step by step feltmaking at Mooroolbark. Take home a starter pack

Felt is one of the oldest ways of making fabric, it is thought to have been around for about 8 thousand years.

Carolyn, who is a local artist and a member of the Yarra Valley Open Studios Group,will be demonstrating the fabulous art of feltmaking.

Carolyn from Ripples on the Pond Textile Arts Studio, has an artistic spirit and love of blending colours. She keeps an open mind to new and different textile applications and her work mainly involves layering and three dimensionality and combines different disciplines of fabrics and textiles.

Each participant will receive a take home feltmaking starter pack and one lucky person will receive the hand built “Lily” felting piece that Carolyn will make on the day.

Come along and see this amazing craft!

Where: Mooroolbark Library, 7 Station Street, Mooroolbark
Cost: $5 per person... refreshments provided
