Pleated bags workshop

A new workshop taking place on Sunday 9th November at Gisburn Festival Hall. This is a new venue for me and it’s a lovely light space to work. Initially we’ll make prefelt (part made felt) then insert pleats and then move on to finishing our designs.

The pleating gives a sculptural quality to the bag.

I made one very large piece of pre-felt so as well as the bag above I also made the one below.

A cute bag. The prefelt is white Norwegian with carded Blue Faced Leicester on top. Felt handle, off cut of pre-felt for the flap and a felt button. I’m very pleased with how this worked out and am looking forward to showing you my next example. Further details and booking on my workshop page.
