Felting is a very old way to make “fabric” from wool.
There are many ways to make felt. Different technics are used in different areas. In Turkey there are still traditional felting shops. Most of them make felt for carpets, using wool that can be found in Turkey. Because of the felting machines they usually have, they can make big pieces at a time.
For some time felting as a hobby has become more and more popular in Turkey as well. There are some courses for felting with a felting needle and for wet felting.
I have been teaching wet felting, and will start to give courses on needle felting as well after the summer.
In this course, we will see how felt is made, learn different technics, and make different objects. From simple flowers to complicated garments. Anything is possible.
Felting is so diverse, there is no limit. From jewelry, to clothing and from housedecorations to bags… In my course there is no strict program. Although I have a program which can be followed, I prefer to work more personal. Using the abilities and talents every individual has. As no one is the same!
