An Introduction to Felting

Slow connection? Watch in lower quality

With Christmas coming up why not make a few of your presents instead of buying them! Over the next couple of weeks we will be uploading a series of easy DIY films to give you some ideas!

Woodlands.co.uk sent a couple of our film makers to the Wilderness Gathering to learn about the different crafts going in the world of woodlands. Here Amanda Critchlow, a professional felter demonstrates the minimal amount of materials needed to craft a felt pouch while explaining the many uses felt has served historically. She passes down her tips and tricks learnt over the years as encourages you to make your own felt creation.

Strips of bark, rived wood or sturdy leaf stitched or woven together like a mat… big pieces the whole village would stand on and roll to compress
