    Event description

    What’s it all about? 

    Felted soap. Never heard of it? Well that's okay. You're in the right place.

    This class uses the technique of wet felting to create a felt casing around bars of soap, which becomes a soft soapy sponge when washing.

    Wool is a natural fibre which can be felted - synthetics won't work - and the special bonus is that wool is also antibacterial. Encasing soap in this way adds to its use life, without the soap dissolving away.

    It's also a useful project for learning about wet felting, which is completely different to needle felting. So come along to another wonderful class with Heather, and personalise your felting project.

    • The basics of wet felting
