Felt Like Reading
At CHAT, we love reading as much as we love making, so we have invited felting expert Vivian Hui to teach you how to make a felted cover for a favourite book or diary!
In this hands-on workshop, participants will choose from a selection of recycled fabric scraps and colourful merino wool roving, and transform them into their own felted book jacket. On top of learning about wet felting techniques, they will be experimenting with the use of prefelt and other fibres to create beautiful textures. This workshop also includes a short tour of CHAT’s reading corner CHAT Reads, introducing participants to the thoughtfully curated books and the artists behind them.
Materials Needed: All materials provided.
Experience Level: Suitable for participants aged 8 or above. Participants aged 8 to 12 must be accompanied by an adult. No previous experience necessary. This workshop welcomes parents and children.
